A few people are trying to set up a blog which would showcase black artists. Keyword. BLACK. From what I know, contact these two women if you’re interested in submitting, helping out..etc. And spread the word. And if you’re not black and you know people who are black and artists. You spread the word too. And artist refers to anything. Wether you can paint or dance or sing or act or write. Anything you do that you consider an art form is applicable.
[in response to a concern that their blog gives off the impression that natural hair makes a woman of color more “black” than the next person] I use this blog as a platform towards broadening the eurocentric and narrowly defined standards of beauty. It’s not a matter of saying someone is better, more black, more self-conscious or self-loving, for embracing their natural hair, but it’s a step towards creating that space where individuals are comfortable enough to do so. We want to progress to a stage where all hair styles, natural or not, is embraced because individuals will have the ability to make their own choices free from societal pressures and stigmas.
