Afrikanface Autochthonous Blood & Bone Production on YouTube

Afrikanface Autochthonous Blood & Bone 2nd production from September 2017 is finally on YouTube (link in bio)⁣. I cried because I hadn’t seen it in so long. And sometimes I forget the magic that comes from my being. ♥️

SHOUT OUT @mai_doll for the beautiful visuals she put together from her iPhone for your viewing pleasure, to all the women that shared their space, talent and time with me on both productions, @pavaagallery home for Afrocentric performance and visual art for curating, and to an awesome community for requesting the second showing that made this video possible, all of your patience and support are deeply appreciated! Enjoy 😉 ⁣

Purpose in the disEASE

There is nothing in vain about 2020. We’ve become so fragile that we forget the strength and purpose we were born with. We descended and “made it”. Makin’ it. We forget our telepathic relationship with Mother Earth, like how we know damn well this pandemic ain’t over just ‘cause we’re over it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Remembering Chadwick Boseman fondly although we’d never met. How he lived his remarkable life, so FULL & PLENTY. ⁣This year is nothing short of a miracle. This year is forcing our divine power into action. It’s a returning. A redemption. A laying down of our bare bones, those of us on this side of spirit and those ancestors alike. It’s an honor to exist. We’re not in vain.⁣

There is purpose in the disEASE of the present moment. My friend @tyshanalakre taught me that. ⁣
⁣⁣
And I don’t know everything. That is all.

Buy Back Black Debt Via Sonya Renee Taylor

6B719B72-105E-4BE6-BCCB-4A1E0E031207

#BuyBackBlackDebt is a project of interracial spiritual and economic relationship building. The goal is not simply to pay off the random debt of Black folks but to re-establish the possibility of human connections and relationship through disrupting active institutions of white supremacist delusion in Black lives. This project is a local, family and community organized process that benefits the lives of Black folks in your proximity.

***KEY NOTE: THIS PROJECT IS NOT A GIFT! You are not gifting or donating or any other language steeped in white saviorism. You are seeking a relationship in which you would like to clear up some of YOUR spiritual debt by doing your part to mitigate the harm your people have done to Black people via institutions of white supremacist delusion. And that you desire to be in an authentic reparative relationship.***

I totally signed up to have my student loan debt cleared. That seems to be the one thing holding me back from being a homeowner. As a black woman, having grown up in abject poverty and broken circumstances, I never got to experience what stability looks like in a home environment. I never got to experience generational wealth or anything close to it. Having my debt cleared would give me a fighting chance, an opportunity to have success I never experienced before, and  the ability to pass down some form of economical wealth to my family.

Being Black is not exhausting. Racism is.

Being Black is not exhausting. Racism is. Don’t ever tell your beautiful Black self that you are exhausting.

Yes, we get tired and are exhausted and must be diligent about taking our rest, setting healthy boundaries.

But our experience is nothing less than a miracle AND we manage to energize everything we touch no matter what. Nobody asks the sun to shine, it just does. That’s us. WE the sun. Shine! ♥️♥️♥️⁣

Black people should be tax exempt: A case for reparations

Been having heavy conversations with friends lately about what justifiable reparations looks like for us surviving descendants of enslaved Afrikan Americans. ⁣

To me it looks like black people being tax exempt for at least 400 years. Also, the government fully funding the purchase of a home or land to build whatever we want on it. That way we have an opportunity to build our own economic wealth in this country. That resonates for me. ⁣

What does #reparations look like to you?⁣ ✊🏾✊🏿✊🏾
