About the Piece: There’s great strength and beauty to be found within the souls of Black people. We possess the power to overcome, and the passion to gleefully love in spite of the glaring weeds of prejudice neatly sewed into the rich, dark soil of our existence. This image invites you to admire and recognize the details adorning this Black, male, body, but it takes you further to an emotional connection. His glowing aura is the strength and the beauty of all Black people, determined to survive. It remains unshaken because we know our worth.His true power shines brighter than his chosen precious metals yet the world refuses to look any further than his undeniably dark skin. The world choose to classify on a glance rather than discover with an open heart. Faceless and nameless; but still he glows.Stripped of our heritage; history; religion; name; language, but still we glow. We know the power we possess. We are golden.
