Flowers Unable To Thrive

When a flower
fails to bloom
we do not chastise,
we ask ourselves why
it’s unable to thrive,
do all we can
to help it survive.
We’re patient, we’re kind
give it space
give it time.
Imagine then,
if we applied
the same love
and kindness
to you,
and to I
oh, my.

Dance Of A Black Man

Dance of a Black Man is my tribute to the men in my life and their vulnerability, which is a strength that often goes unrecognized.

This body of work portrays the black male as an angel, soft yet powerful, with wings
that signify freedom and the ability to thrive.
Combatting narratives of violence, “Dance of a Black Man” instead reveals deep and beautiful humanity that isn’t always shown.

Using movement, drama, angelic
themes, and soft but vast landscapes, this project honors the black men – fathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, friends- who have pushed me towards life-changing experiences, shifting culture, and ultimately changing the world!”

Name five black men you’re grateful for. Can be anyone, artists, people you know…why do you appreciate them?
