These photographs mark the beginning of my editorial documentation of “100 Days with blackshesus”. Saturday March 29th we embarked on this journey at “From Niggas to Gods” an afrofuturism event. This performative art installation entitled “Brick by Brick” allowed participants to create words, phrases, and sentences that reflected their social, political, and spiritual experiences in this country. Black Shesus is silent. Merely a guide through the world that she’s created for you to be who you are and she challenges you to come to terms with the beauty of blackness, the beauty of conflict, the beauty of being genuinely you despite whatever emotions are evoked at the sight of her or the activities you are sure to engage in while in her world. The various Black Shesus installations challenge social norms, spiritual conformity, and is a must to experience no matter your race, age, gender, sexuality, or class. Stay tuned for more images. Here is a bit more about the experience directly from 

The Vibe

When I sparked this journey, my intention was to confront the manner in which Black Women have painstakingly assimilated to a euro-centric standard of beauty perception. And while in some situations this remains to be true, a more profound realization became hallelujah clear. Black Is Beauty. Not through our shades, but by our Blackness alone. And everybody knows it. Except us.   -Black Shesus
