Posted on August 24, 2016 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

In partnership with Unlabelled Magazine: "In the last two decades, South Africa has seen the documentation of various subcultures; many of which have existed before they were documented. Many of these subcultures, unable to conform to or identify with dominant and commercial culture, create and represent minority or divergent ideologies and identities most observable through music, fashion and language."

Viewers are swept into the dominant reality of natural hair, and society's influence on the Black girl's internal narrative.

FEATURE: Art from Malawian visual artist Wickson Tonde redefines interactive art as his subjects jump off the page

Posted on August 23, 2016 at 2:42pm 0 Comments

You published a featured article today about #MelaninMonday. Credit for Melanin Monday should be given to bonitaapplebelle from tumblr, not Young Paris. She created it first and started a movement on the site within the black community and he took the name and started plastering 'Melanin' on photos. Please give proper credit where its due.
