"Good Morning Your Highness" (Coming To America), 2013. Acrylic on canvas (at Downtown Chicago)
The Black body, more so of women, have stood on the opposite side of the narrow Eurocentric standards of beauty. Black hairstyles have defiantly rebelled against and even when straightened added creative magic of Blackness and Boldness. Black hair, whether relaxed or natural, locked or shaven is beautiful. Black women are beautiful.

"During those long years in Oakland public schools, I did not have one teacher who taught me anything relevant to my own life or experience. Not one instructor ever awoke in me a desire to learn more or to question or to explore the worlds of literature, science, and history. All they did was try to rob me of the sense of my own uniqueness and worth, and in the process nearly killed my urge to inquire." - Huey Newton #blackpride #blackamerica
