I’ve been very quiet I’m the last few days because I lost 2 months worth of PhD work (😭) which at this stage of the game is a little like losing an arm. Anyway, @williamsonartofficial has been hard at work and this is the latest addition to the series heading over to NYC in a few weeks. Taken from the title of the film, ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ which if you haven’t seen already, you really should. * * * * * * #JamesBaldwin #iamnotyournegro #art #artlife #race #racism #america #contemporaryart #artwork #artshow #artgallery #artfair #nyc #artnyc #nycart #skull #artcollective #artcollector #artblogger #artdealer #blackpanther #blacklivesmatter

We just saw this clip tonight at @blmsacramento movie night celebrating black liberation then and now. None of us will be free until we have #blackliberation #blacklivesmatter #endwhitesupremacy #Repost @lgbt_history ・・・ “I’ll tell you what freedom is to me: No Fear! . “I mean, really, no fear. If I could have that . . . half of my life, no fear. Lots of children have no fear.

I'm not done with this portrait series, but we're nearing the end of Black History month, and I'm not sure if I'll get another one done before the 28th. It seems appropriate that the last one for this month be current activist, @shi@shishi.rose. Last year, shortly before the women's march, I happened to catch the "Activist A Day" post on Facebook, and it was Shishi's post. It was thought provoking and uncomfortable and it introduced me to thinking more about intersectional feminism. She has been instrumental in getting many people to think more about race, privilege, feminism, inclusivity - she will be someone kids learn about someday and definitely a recommended follow. @womensmarch @womenshistory @ahistoryofblackexcellence @shishi.rose #art #artist #artwork #drawing #charcoal #pastel #portrait #woc #inspiration #love #feminism #feminist #politics #womensmarch #equality #lgbt #lgbtq #pride #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #intersectionalfeminism #beautiful #history #biography #blacklivesmatter #blm

It's Sunday! Proverbs 22:6 " Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it." My mom and dad taught me to do that which is right, as did their parents before them. I have instilled the same values into my daughter as well. I hope one day when she has children that she will do the same thing. My mother hated injustice, so she stressed standing up against injustice. This is something she taught my siblings and myself from an early age. I will eternally be grateful for her teachings. I am so proud of the young ppl in Parkland, Florida who are taking a stand by speaking out against gun violence in an attempt to change gun laws. I love their passion. I am also proud of the young ppl with the Black Lives Matter movement who are bringing awareness to black and brown ppl being killed by police. Young ppl have always been on the forefront of bringing about social change through out the history of this country. Young ppl protested during the Vietnam war. Young ppl marched and demonstrated to help bring about an end to Jim Crow laws during the Civil Rights era. We must encourage these young ppl today who are working toward bringing about social change. Teaching our children to take a stand is not always easy. Standing against injustice is necessary to change the culture and do away with unjust laws that affect so many ppl in this country. Have faith and continue the fight. Young ppl we are with you. 💖💕👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿@loveagreatdeal Thanks for the Barbie doll suit. 🌺💕💖🙏🏿👊🏾🌺#bibleverse #protest #kidsshouldnotbeafrsidtogotoschool#demonstrate #standagainstinjustice #speakout #takeastand #teachchildrentodotherightthing #blackdolls #90sdolls #mtmdolls#kellydoll #avonbarbie #aadolls #dollsofcolor #dollclothes #gift #socialchange #banassaultweapons #enoughisenough #blacklivesmatter #westandwithparkland

I’m down. Well I mean banning guns will never work but getting gun control like Japans for example and banning certain makes of guns (AK-47 AR-15) will definitely work. | #equality #bla#blacklivesmatter #black #lives #matter #democrat #lgbt #lgb#lgbtqa #lgbtq #obamacare #afr#afro #alllivesmatterwhenblacklivesmatter #blackexcellence #afro #africa #uk #naturalhair #culturalappropriation #trump #blackculture #blackpeople #prochoice #prolife #intersectionalfeminism #womanism #womanist #asianrepresentationmatters #dearwhitepeople #whiteprivilege source @fem.inist

If you voice your cause yet in the same breath diss someone else's, you are part of the problem. Why would oppression be wrong to only your people, but ok for others?🤔 #StrengthInSolidarity

The love of this world is the reason behind every sin. (Assakhawi, Hasan) The one who loves this world will only get three things out of it: an everlasting misery, impoverishment for his keenness of seeking wealth regardless of its source, and false hope. This world demands and is demanded, so whoever is after this world, the hellfire will call for him until death overcomes him, and whoever seeks the hereafter, this world will call for him until he gets of it all his allotted provision.
