7/21 • "Foundation/Family" • During my first visit to #curlfest, I focused my photography on families. To me, black identity is blooming in incredible ways, and the generation I'm most excited for is the one after us. Because of our efforts and those of past generations, we've built a foundation for blackness to continue to rise. Praying that God enriches the spirits of the youth and shows them the beauty within themselves despite what the world has said about black skin and curly/kinky hair. May God grant them the opportunities to tap into their identity in ever more powerful ways.
