2 (REALLY) POWERFUL BLACK FEMINISTS.

Hard to live in a world where your community has no references and does’nt give a damn fuck about her heritage. Here, i share you my two favorite women.

Célèbre chanteuse, activiste, danseuse et meneuse de music-hall, elle est autant connue pour son talent, avec notamment sa chanson J’ai deux amours, que pour avoir été l’une des premières stars noires.

Maya Angelou is an afro-american poet, writer, actress, and activist. She’s became as Josephine Baker, an important figure from the Civil Rights Movement and iconic in the artistic and politic life in USA. She’s mostly known for I Know Why The Caged Bird Singq (1969), And Still I Rise (1978).
She influenced celebrities as Nicki Minaj and the billionaire Oprah Winfrey. Maya Angelou dies in 2014 from a long sickness.

We belong to a creative generation. More there is births, more there is talent. So it is important as a person who coming from a minority to take her chances to become a new figure of success for his own pleasure and for his people. No need to have a don but if you have one, use it instead to hide. You can learn how to be someone on this society. If you have a passion or something not ordinary just share, spread it as love.

I and friends started to learn hairstyles, how to do nails, eyebrows..etc and created business, because why spend money when it can be useful for more important ? If we, you can. And i can affirm that i saved around 440$ (400) for year.

I know it’s difficult to be succesful in life being a black person. When you see how they kill us, how they torture us, how they hate us, You are dominate by fear and more..

Meanwhile, those beautiful women became figures for us in using their talent and fear as a strength in struggling with a racist system until their death.

Power to the people.
