Mickalene Thomas, Mama Bush: (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher, 2009.

Mickalene Thomas’s film Happy Birthday to a Beautiful Woman premieres on HBO today! On Creative Time Reports, she commemorated the life of her late mother, whose conviction and resilience inspired Thomas to make a series of paintings and photographs in tribute to “Mama Bush.” 

I want to live the rest of my life, however long or short, with as much sweetness as I can decently manage, loving all the people I love, and doing as much as I can of the work I still have to do.

I am going to write fire until it comes out of my ears, my eyes, my nose holes - everywhere. Until it’s every breath I breathe. I’m going to go out like a fucking meteor.

Audre Lorde (via hudawashere)

If internalized racism enters the souls of black folks through years of socialization then we are not going to be rid of it by simply giving shallow expressions to the notion that black is beautiful. We must live in our bodies in such a way that we daily indicate that black is beautiful. We must talk about about blackness differently. And we cannot do any of this constructive action without first loving blackness
