African-Americans will always be present. We are a mighty people. We create culture. We are inventors, creators, innovators.
Our ancestors had everything stripped away when we were enslaved and yet still we rise -- gloriously, gracefully, powerfully.

🌎💙💫Artwork by ya girl BLUSTVR😊 🌏💫💙 "I think that smiling in public is against the law
'Cause love don't get you through life no more.... Yo, it's about love for cars, love for funds
Loving to love mad sex, loving to love guns
Love for opposite, love for fame and wealth
Love for the fact of no longer loving yourself, kid
We living in them days of the man-made ways" -
