BLACK is a beautiful project because it allowed me to not only be very vulnerable with my art, but to promote positive black images. It touches on black femininity, black masculinity, black sexuality, unity, community, and most importantly, love. I wanted to use this opportunity, especially with it being Black History Month, to put out a project that didn’t depict slavery, but black beauty, and mainly love.
