Black women have always been a support system for us in our upbringing. Not only are they resilient and unapologetic, but they are the foundation for the black community. Black women have nursed us, provided for us, and raised us to survive in a country that seeks to tear us apart. This piece symbolizes the beauty and collectivism of Blackness in all shades. Paying tribute to black mothers, sisters, and friends; we wanted to recognize their beauty and strength as they seek to uplift everyone around them. Let this image serve as a thank you to them- for teaching us to never cower in the face of discrimination.
