A new series thats still a WIP. Two are going to be in the Chicago based art publication called To:From.

This series is analyzing my relationship with my father via the internet after he moved from Baltimore to Georgia 10 years ago. I’m collecting sent images, emails, texts and other things sent over the past 7 years.

She’s since brought her twitter back and has been getting a lot of love and support from her fans from all over the world, however Normani has not been the only black woman/celebrity who has been subjected to high amounts of racism through social media. I love Normani and I wanted to make something nice just to continue to push black girl magic in the air.
