abstrackafricana:

that’s a beautiful philosophy, but dont fall for the “humanitarian” trick bag - having power is ALWAYS the goal… and how you actually UTILIZE IT determines your level of actual freedom. 

liberation is having the power of your oppressors but using it for the benefit of the oppressed!

only those with actual power and authority to lose will ever tell you differently, even if they are the most liberal of allies.

Clearing the View: Black Women Photographers in the early 1900s, Jocelyn H. Cohen.,1990

cleaning off my desk and finding some things that kind ppl have given me. i used to take some nice pictures and i took really good pictures of my nephew, i brought some film to south carolina to take pictures of my ppl (gullah ppl)  and i took some good pictures of the mountains when i was visiting eastern ky. a kind poet i grew up with gave me this. it’s 24 years old and she gave it to me to encourage me to take pictures again. maybe some day, but i just thought this was really beautiful the archiving of Black women’s contributions to photography (which was never made to honor our existence). A lot of Black women photographers were domestic workers and sharecroppers and artists and like OG badasses always negotiating need with the dedication to art and fighting white supremacy via representation as early as 1844.
