Just to let you (the world) know – I am still all BLACK! – Unapologetically BLACK*

I like my baby w| baby hair and afros. I like my negro nose w| Jackson Five nostrils.

In a country, in a world filled w| hypocrisy.

Blackness is not what whiteness considers virtuous. But yet, our culture, our skin color, our beautiful features are mimicked by those same person’s who hate us – but are so, and have been, infatuated w| everything that makes us divine.

Beyonce is in solidarity w| her fellow black women – and men.

With the Tidal (the music streaming service owned by Jay Z and friends) announcement on Friday, $1.5 million will be donated to the Black Lives Matter organization as well as other civil rights groups including: New York Million Hoodies, Hands Up United, NY Justice League, the Oscar Grant Foundation and the Trayvon Martin Foundation.

This is exactly what we need from our black celebrities – awareness, open discussions, conscious music and attributions to our communities.

Selma Director Ava DuVernay Interview on DemocracyNow!


The lack of diversity, opinion and understanding in America | Hollywood of films which don’t portray Black people as slaves or the housemaid.

This film gives a look into Martin Luther King Jr. and the countless people who stood next to him in the fight for civil rights. The fight that has still not been completely won to this current day – give homage to the powerful voices and bodies which paved the path for us today.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – MLK Jr.
