World Famous Painter Highlights the ‘Grace’ of Black Women With New Work

By Sonya Eskridge
Cameras followed Kehinde Wiley, a New York-based portrait painter, as he decided to explore the inner and outer beauty of Black women for his latest project.
Kehinde is known for his creating portraits of young Black men, showcasing them in a way that mainstream society rarely does: strong, noble, soulful and heroic. He sets them against and even places them into classical-inspired pieces like a portrait modeled after Jacques-Louis David’s Napoleon Crossing the Alps. It’s been the main focus of his work for years up until now.
Recently, Kehinde decided to color outside the lines of his comfort zone by creating pieces with Black women as the subject. The whole process was captured for PBS in a documentary titled “Kehinde Wiley: Economy of Grace.”

Strange Fruit - We will never forget/forgive…

Don’t look at these pictures and say we don’t need a revolution because this happened long ago, look at these pictures and say we need a revolution because the killing of our people is still going on physically,  mentally, emotionally and economically and enough is enough.

Those last two pictures were recent.  If I recall correctly, the last one was last year.

I reblog for all of y’all who don’t want to face this dark past. LOOK. 

Never forget

Always re-blog. Always remember.

there are about four or five that ive never seen before, ive never seen mass lycnching.. this makes me.

THIS MAKES ME FUCKING SICK. I ONLY REBLOGGED IT TO SHOW THE WORLD THAT DUMB SHIT IS STILL HAPPENING! MAKE IT STOP!

This hurts my heart so much, I can only imagine what those people went through! This is devastating… There are no words.

Can’t believe this made them smile. I’m biracial but the pigment of my skin is brown so you fell me if a white girl or boy wanted me that I’ll be hanged?

MLK helped to end the reign of terror we used to live with daily.

this needs way more notes bruh

The fact that their standing around taking pictures…sick

Just to imagine those kids are probably still alive today makes me so skeptical about white people’s past.

STAY WOKE!!!!!

Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

THIS IS THE SHIT

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!

The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.  @KrystVegaNeteru

This is beautiful.

I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.

I’m so angry that I didn’t know this existed, damn cool

Yoooooo I wanna ask why I never heard of this before but I already know the answer
