Also I hate that whole “eventually everybody will be mixed” narrative because it’s about the erasure/dilution of obvious markers blackness like dark skin and kinky hair but lol

Ari’s agency @africancreativecollective is far more than a PR company. She’s been my therapist and reality checker. Also let’s be real she’s facilitated media outreach that’s generated sales!
She also OVERstands African wahala!
She’s one of the good ones. Nigerian hustle with Mayfair finish 😆!

#FASHION #BUSINESS can’t remember where I read this but it was such a clear analysis of the way fast and cheap fashion is impacting everyone. Also how our obsession for bargains means we end up buying poor quality masked as a high end bargain in outlets etc.
The Afro-Brazilian Sisterhood of the Good Death is made up of female descendants of slaves, all age 50 and over, and honours both Catholic traditions and Afro-Brazilian Candomble religious rites. The sisterhood is believed to be the oldest organization for women of African descent in the Americas. The state of Bahia received at least 1.2 million slaves from Africa and remains the most African of Brazilian states, where blacks make up around 80 percent of the population.
