The Beauty that Black Panther Has Inspired

Posted by NI4TW on Feb 28, 2018 6:56:16 PM

 

For a little more than a year, Black theatergoers eagerly anticipated the release of Black Panther. This February, when it finally premiered, the film did not disappoint. Featuring a predominantly Black production crew and cast, the film broke ticket pre-sale and opening weekend box office records. To date, the movie has made $700 million in a mere two weeks and will likely reach the billion dollar mark in another week’s time.

Why We Must Not Buy Into Colorism

Posted by NI4TW on Feb 23, 2018 2:27:34 PM

 

By now, it is difficult not to have heard of Amara Le Negra, the gorgeous Afro-Latina music artist on Love & Hip Hop Miami. Besides having an epic head full of natural curls, her personality is larger than life and she has been quite vocal on the colorism she has experienced. In fact, throughout this season of Love & Hip Hop Miami, there has been an ongoing conversation about colorism from both ends of the spectrum from Amara Le Negra and Veronica Vega (another Love & Hip Hop Miami cast member). While Amara has questioned why the Latin image always is a singular depiction of fair skin and straight hair, Veronica recently asked the question of how black someone has to be to be considered black, and—citing the lack of aid in Puerto Rico as an example—notes that anyone who is not white understands inequality all too well.

What is the Apple of My Eye? The Answer is You.

Posted by NI4TW on Feb 16, 2018 5:34:26 AM

This week we celebrated the various apples of our eyes—or our most cherished someone(s) —in observation of St. Valentine’s Day with heartfelt greeting cards, flowers, candy , teddy bears and dazzling dates out on the town or special evenings indoors. We usually think of Valentine’s Day as a celebration of romantic love but that doesn’t stop us from expressing love on the 14th for our family, friends and community.

For me, my community is very much the apple of my eye. And it’s this love for my community that constantly inspires to me to continue to innovate as I grow and build products in service of those who have naturally coily, curly, wavy and kinky hair. The way I feel about my community can best be described in this special kind of love poem written by the classic African American poet Marvin Wyche Jr.
