Sorry everyone for not posting last week, but I was working on an essay for the Afrofuturism 2.0 (and falling in love with The Walking Dead hehe). But below are some things that are happening or will happen in the near future:
*A friend of mine sent me this project from photographer, Ijeoma D. Iheanacho, called the reImagining. Inspired by Audre Lorde’s quote “It is axiomatic that if we do not define ourselves for ourselves, we will be defined by others-for their use and to our detriment,” the purpose of the project is “to give Black women the right to determine for themselves the images they want representing them, and thus establish and distribute their own identities. The photography created for this show will be the opportunity for 100 Black women to reclaim their identities not just from the world, but for themselves.” Iheanacho wants to shed light on the “everyday Black women” who are either ignored or misrepresented. The 300 photographs will be part of an exhibition, gallery tours and outreach programs for organizations. After reading the article about ending stereotypes of Black women, this project is definitely feels necessary.I volunteered to be part of the project, so I will be working on that in the future. Iheanacho is still looking for models, so if you want to join or donate, contact her here.
