Royal Blood is Melanin
This piece serves to celebrate the beauty and strength of black women globally. The incorporation of the Queen Nefertiti headdress serves as a reminder of the Egyptian dynasty and the earliest queens of human civilization having been of fair skin. In our society that continuously diminishes and deems the black woman ‘invisible’, I hope to remind and uplift my fellow mothers and sisters of their unwavering strength and resilience. I hope to empower and encourage fellow you black female artists as well to emerge and take their place in society.
