📸❤📷#ArtIsAWeapon #MorningMessage "Wings" by #photographer @cliftonhenri. See more/purchase his photos: www.cliftonhenri.com ____________________ Reposted from @cliftonhenri - #Wings is another #empowering and wildly popular photograph I’ve made. It’s the single image that “gave me permission” to be an artist for the rest of my life. I wanted to create work that featured Black and Brown faces as the subject of fine art and use photography to do it. So, like me... all she wanted to do was see a #REFLECTION of herself. So what do we do?? We harness our determination, courage and imagination to make it so, telling our own stories and creating our own narratives. I was just a Junior in College when this magic happened and I’ve been flourishing as an artist since. . . With 60+ Awards for my photography under my belt I’ll be approaching my 10th year as a Full-time artist in 2018. . . . #wings #cliftonhenri #limitless #soar #blackgirlfly #blackgirlsrock #empoweringwomen #blkcreatives #chicagoartist #popularphoto #500px #magic #oprah #favoritethings #dreamers #supportlivingartists #buyartnotdrugs #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon
Have as beautiful a weekend as this little girl is having realizing her dream 👧🏾 💭🎶 to play violin performed by musician @efikzara 🎻👸🏾♥️👧🏾 #DreamBig #GirlPower #WomensWave 🎵#Repost @trascapades ・・・ 💖👏🏾🎼🎻 #ArtIsAWeapon #Violinist @efikzara seranading this mesmerized little one is a sweet reminder that the arts should be accessible to all children. Regrann from @efikzara - So since this video is making some rounds, I thought I share it on my own platform again 😅. I’m so touched that you all enjoy this moment as much as I did! - I was doing a private performance at the Ghana High Commission and this adorable little girl fell in love with me and my violin. I couldn’t help but serenade her and hopefully inspire her to make music in this way, one day. - A lot of youths aren’t exposed to classical instruments but it’s been so fun showing kids that regardless of the violin’s history, as a young black person, you can use this instrument to give life to the music of your heart and your people. - Enjoy! - #blackexcellence #blackmusic #violin #embracingblackculture #thenextgeneration #violinist #blackviolinist #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon #MusicIsLife #MondayMotivation

🎭🎬👏🏿❤#ArtIsAWeapon #BlackGirlTheaterGeeks 🤓 I'm ecstatic about @marcusgardley 's explosive play "The House That Will Not Stand" being developed into a movie! I am fascinated with New Orleans history and culture - especially related to Black experiences, social practices, race and class - so I was drawn to this story. The off-Broadway production at the @nytw79 in August was my best live theater experience in 2018 and one of the most spirit-rousing, provacative plays I have ever seen: www.nytw.org/show/house-will-not-stand/ ___________________ From @shadow_act & @deadline : "Set in Faubourg Treme in New Orleans 1813, the stage production is loosely inspired by Garcia Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba that examines the fascinating, mostly unknown, lives of the free women of color who became millionaires within the system of plaçage (the common-law marriages of white men and black Creole women) and fought against racial oppression pre-Civil War."

🎶🎤📷 #ArtIsAWeapon @theroots "Undun" album dropped 7 years ago today (December 2, 2011). I consider this album and its cover - a picture by famed #photographer @jamelshabazz - sonic and visual Black storytelling masterpieces. (Swipe ⬅️.) __________________ Regraned from @blackthought - The Undun cover features a @jamelshabazz photograph. @lesliehewitt included a similar one in the presentation for our talk @themuseumofmodernart. This photo reminds me of me. This was what we used to do as kids. And to Leslie’s point, I see the joy in this photo because I have an intimate understanding of it. But for others, it could be a image of poverty because they don’t understand, and can’t relate. And then, the Coca-Cola sign in the background speaking to the far reaches of capitalism. Damn near every corner of the earth touched. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Think that’s the genius of Jamel Shabazz. Capturing our essence. And it’s why me, Rich, and @questlove picked the cover image — the joy. While understanding the dichotomy. #undunanniversary ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ___⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #undun #theroots #BlackThought #hiphop #blackexcellence #culture #photography #BlackJoy #JoyIsResistance #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon

🎨💔#ArtIsAWeapon 👨🏻‍🎨#KeithHaring Ignorance = Fear 1989 © @keithharingfoundation #WorldAIDSDay _________________ @Regran_ed from @tate - ‘I don’t know if I have five months or five years, but I know my days are numbered. This is why my activities and projects are so important now. I’m sure that what will live on after I die is important enough to make sacrifices of my time. Work is all I have and art is more important than life’ - Keith Haring, 1987 Keith Haring (1958–1990) used his art to raise awareness of HIV. He himself was diagnosed with the virus in 1988. The artist’s poster ‘Ignorance = Fear’ refers to the challenges faced by people living with HIV and subsequently AIDS. He wanted to reach as many people as possible, and his work continues to highlight the importance of HIV and AIDS education today. A year after his diagnosis, Haring set up The Keith Haring Foundation, to provide funding and support for #HIV #research , #charities and #education . Keith Haring died of AIDS related complications on 16 February 1990, age 31. The @KeithHaringFoundation continues to strive to meet Keith Haring’s wishes in the fight against HIV and AIDS.

🖤👏🏿#ArtIsAWeapon @britishvogue editor @edward_enninful is this week's @washingtonpostmag 's cover story, penned by @washingtonpost fashion critic @robingivhan , photographed by @tomhoops. "Enninful, 46, took the helm of the highly regarded glossy in August 2017, marking a litany of firsts. He is the first man to run the 102-year-old fashion magazine and its first black editor in chief. He has been unabashed and vocal about the historical lack of diversity in the magazine’s pages and on its staff, and he’s determined to remedy that specifically and within the fashion industry at large. His take on globalism and his expansive view of culture have gotten him noticed. Now everyone is waiting to see what he’ll do next." _____________________ "The idea of Enninful as the next Anna Wintour — that is, the next editor to wield outsize influence within the fashion industry and to become iconic outside of it — does not require a move to New York and an office at One World Trade Center. That perch would give him a bigger audience and greater financial might. But he already has extraordinary influence. If Wintour is the producer of studio-financed, big-tent blockbusters, Enninful is the critically acclaimed indie filmmaker whose work punches you in the gut. It is rich and dynamic. It may rile you up or soothe you. It will make you think.” Read more: https://wapo.st/enninful #YallGonnaGetThisBlackExcellence #EdwardEnninful #BritishVogue #BlackEditorInChief #BlackFashionEditor #RobinGivhan #BlackFashionCritic #WashingtonPostMag #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon

For others, it is a fascinating, intellectual and emotional journey sinuous with adventure, phenomenal discovery and a labour of love." - www.woodrownashstudios.com ____________________ Regran_ed from @mocada_museum - American sculptor Woodrow Nash explores human physique in relation to #mythology , brought to life through the use of #stoneware , #earthenware , #terracotta or #porcelain techniques. Inspired primarily by 15th century forms made in Benin and other 18th century styles, Nash's work undergoes a pit fire process or a "raku" effect that modernizes and transforms each piece into unforgettable symbols of #Africansoul and sensuality. #AfricanNouveau #Blackart #BlackAmericanArtists #AfricanArt #Benin #creators #sculpture #raku #unapologeticallyafrican #TraScapades #BlackGirlArtGeeks 🤓 #ArtIsAWeapon #WillTravelForArt
💔✊🏾🎨#ArtIsAWeapon #Mural by @airmagination honoring #SeanBell , who was murdered by the #NYPD 12 years ago today (November 25, 2006). Police officers fired 50 bullets into Bell's car outside a Queens, NY club after his bachelor party. He died hours before he was to marry @nicolepbell , the mother of his two young children. The officers who killed him and wounded two friends (who were also in his car) were acquitted of criminal charges in the fatal shooting. Over a decade later, his death still stings, even for those of us who never even knew him. Thinking of Bell's fiance, children and loved ones. #EndPoliceViolence #NeverForget #EndPoliceBrutality #BlackLivesMatter #airmagination #streetart #nycmurals #urbanart #nyurbanart #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon

🎬🎤🎶👑 #ArtIsAWeapon After 46 years and many stumbling blocks, @amazing_grace_film - the documentary of #ArethaFranklin recording her (and arguably THE) quintessential gospel album "Amazing Grace" - will screen in #NYC for a limited week run December 7-13 at the @filmforumnyc , and nationwide early next year! I've been slightly obsessed with this documentary since I first learned it existed. The brief clips I've seen over the years are glorious, and the film's reviews have been overwhelmingly and enthusiastically glowing. I hope Queen Aretha finally approved of the film before she transitioned earlier this year (she blocked its release several times), and that she would now be pleased that her adoring fans and gospel music enthusiasts will finally get to experience this piece of visual and musical heaven and history. ____________________ Watch the trailer for Amazing Grace, directed by Sydney Pollack and filmed in 1972 at the New Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles when Aretha Franklin was just 29 years old: https://vimeo.com/284564169 ____________________ See movie times and buy tickets for screenings at The Film Forum, 209 W.

🎨✊🏾💔 #ArtIsAWeapon #TamirRice #artwork by  @kryanhenisey. Four years ago today (November 23, 2014), 12-year-old Tamir Rice died after being fatally shot by Cleveland police the day before as he was playing in a park. Tamir's murder and the subsequent failure of the system to hold the police who took his life accountable - which has been the case for countless other innocent, unarmed Black people shot by police - is, in part, the reason why former pro football player @Kaepernick7 sacrificed his career and took a knee. Injustices such as this are why the #artist #collective @Unitedblackout began the #BlackoutBlackFriday #boycott of “major retailers, and any corporations that violate human right standards, and/or profit off the pain and suffering of others." Tamir and so many other victims of state-sanctioned violence are why I refrained from shopping today and why I still refuse to watch NFL games. I hope more of us will take some direct actions to honor Tamir and to fight #social , #racial and #economic injustices. If you still support the NFL and/or spent today shopping, maybe you will also consider doing some of the work outlined by the @tamirricefoundation - swipe ⬅️ for more information. ____________________ @Regran_ed from @tamirricefoundation - It’s been 4 years without Tamir. More than 2 million minutes have passed since I last held him in my arms. Tamir was taken from us much too soon. He was 12 when he was fatally shot by two Cleveland police officers. This year he would have turned 16. Thank you for your kindness and sympathy during our time of loss. So many people are asking what they can do to help. Right now, we are celebrating Tamir’s life by doing 4 things to make a difference in the lives of young people in our community. Please join us in solidarity as we work to create a world in which young people feel safe, nurtured, and valued—especially in their darkest times. With gratitude, Ms. Samaria Rice Mother of Tamir Rice #Tamirs4thAnniversary #BlackLivesMatter #EndPoliceBrutality #StopKillerCops #PoliceViolence #BlackoutBlackFriday #ColinKaepernick #NoNFL #NotOneDime #BanNFL #IStandWithKaep #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon

On Friday November 23rd, the biggest retail shopping day of the year also known as #BlackFriday , join Blackout for Human Rights as we kick off our fifth annual #BlackoutBlackFridaycampaign , urging people nationwide to take part in an economic #boycott of major retailers, and any corporations that violate human rights standards, and/or profit off the pain and suffering of others. Launched in 2014, #BlackoutBlackFriday is a call-to-action encouraging individuals to refrain from shopping to protest social and economic injustice in the U.S., and instead engage in #culturalactivism . As an alternative, Blackout for Human Rights -- a collective founded by filmmaker #RyanCoogler with members including #AvaDuVernay , #JesseWilliams , #MichaelBJordan , Charles King and others -- has organized FREE events in New York City and Oakland, California to #celebrate #arts and #culture , and to build solidarity against extreme capitalism and human right atrocities happening across the country."

👏🏾🎤😍🎨#ArtIsAWeapon 👨🏿‍🎨@kadirnelson 's portrait of the iconic soul music artist #MarvinGaye is featured on the new @uspostalservice stamp, to be released in 2019! Repost from @kadirnelson : With this new stamp in the Music Icons series, the U.S. Postal Service honors Marvin Gaye (1939–1984) — the “Prince of Soul” — one of the most influential music performers of his generation. The stamp design features a portrait of Gaye inspired by historic photographs. The stamp pane is designed to resemble a vintage 45 rpm record sleeve. One side of the pane includes the stamps, brief text about Gaye’s legacy, and the image of a sliver of a record seeming to peek out the top of the sleeve. Another portrait of Gaye, also inspired by historic photographs, appears on the reverse along with the Music Icons series logo.
