In praise of Black resistance: a reflection on the Charlotte Uprising

To say that it's a surprise that another body has fallen victim to a police officer while simultaneously being unarmed and Black, would be to say that we haven't been paying attention for the last few years. Much of what is being felt day to day in cities around America is a combination of fear, disgust, frustration, and helplessness at a system that was not made with Black people in mind. How does one reckon with this? How does a community respond when one of their own is taken in such a way?…See More

FEATURE: Faces- Finding the glory of Black skin in all its hues (Philmore)

Posted on September 26, 2016 at 5:08pm 0 Comments

The model for this painting was chosen because he has some of the most beautiful skin I’ve ever seen. It is rich with pigment, and reflects the light in the most captivating way. I instantly noticed him in the front row of a talk I was giving. It is strange to me how anyone could not see the beauty in his skin, and yet sadly there are people who would insist that it is somehow inferior to other colors. Back when I was a little girl I went to a school where I was one of a…

Once & for all: Pointing Out "Black-On-Black Crime" is Gaslighting

Posted on September 23, 2016 at 3:29pm 0 Comments

Ooookay! I think I am officially done with this bullshit.



When surfing along Twitter looking towards the next hashtag name, I have more than twice coming across people who say that before we talk about police killing black people, they should talk about black-on-black crime. Where some people might agree, most of us EASILY see that this is nothing more than a form of gaslighting, deflecting any knowledge of their shortcomings by pointing out yours, real or…
