Contrary to popular belief; vanilla is not in fact white – its black, or arguably dark ebony. The message behind this opening statement is; don’t ever feel societal pressure to conform to being lighter, fairer or paler. You are descendants of ancient Nubian and Bantu Kings, Emperors, Queens and Warriors – all of who were rich with melanin. Embrace your black, ebony, onyx, caramel, honey mustard skin – you are gorgeous the way you are.
Thank you to my dear friend Sicolette Abang Mokgano for working with me on this empowering photoshoot.
Be Bold – Be Black.
