Black beauty has always been muted.For many years it has always been 'sweapt under the rug", hidden, downplayed or just not displayed.From Africa to Brazil and every country in between black women have the same exoticism, feminism, and sex appeal that other groups of women have.So why, then, have black women been reduced to " booty shaking whores, big fat mammies, loud manly woman" etc.. ? This trend has been going on for far too long. Growing up, and even now, i see movies and pictures that depict us from other people's perspective of how we're suppose to be, rather then the way we truely are.So i made a conscious choice to depict us in our true form.For the next few posts, I will discuss skin care and mental health issues that pertain to black women. It's up to us to take care of ourselves, both mentally and physically, which entails keeping our hair nice, our skin clean, our bodies in shape and overall our minds healthy. Despite the way we are sometimes portrayed in the media, we know who we are and how sexy we really look. My message to black women all over the world is "Love theyself, Love thy sister, and most importantly, Love thy soul."
Here's a poem:
" BLACK BEAUTY
BLACK BEAUTY IS THE BLACK WOMAN, IN EVERY ASPECT OF THE WORD. DESPITE ALL THE NEGATIVITY THAT YOU’VE HEARD.
WE ARE THE FIBER THAT KEEPS OUR FAMILY TOGETHER. WE ARE THE FOUNDATION FOR OUR CHILDREN’S EVERY ENDEAVOR.
WE ARE GRACEFUL CREATURES, PRESERVED BY NATURE SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME & NOT EVEN AGE CAN DISTURB OUR BALANCE OF LINES SO PERFECTLY DEFINED.
BLACK BEAUTY IS THE BLACK WOMAN BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT. IF YOU LOOK, LISTEN, & LEARN, YOU WILL KNOW WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT. WE ARE LIVING JEWELS, INSIDE & OUT
."
