The Year of Breakthrough - Black Women Edition

Welcome back to this lovely space where you are guaranteed an escapism into fashion, style and much needed creativity. With everything that has been going on in our social climate, I felt the need to push myself in my creative direction to illustrate the beauty of what it is to be a Black Woman. A Black Woman who is proud of her skin colour, ancestral features and most importantly our story.

The year, 2020 is becoming a year where suppressed voices are being heard for the first time in a very long time. Though it has been a disappointing year, it is becoming a year of breakthrough for Black Women. From the beginning of slavery to this very decade, the many voices of Black women have been dismissed, ignored and made irrelevant. Over time our traumas and grievances had to be a thing that had to be suppressed because in reality, no one really cared and therefore we did not matter. Malcolm X infamously said himself that "The most disrespected person in America is the Black Woman". Though based in America, I know and many other Black women know that this is a universal fact.

Though there is a fight for racial equality, there is also a fight over the patriarchal system that degrades the lives of Black Women, through sexual abuse, colorism and so much more. I created this post to encourage Black Queens to continue to speak up and fight for change. To see through the stereotypical traps that they enforce to silence us. Men, especially Black Men need to hear and listen to our traumas and hardships in order to do better by us and for us. This is crucial for the success of our community and the healthy growth of future Black families.
