Listen To Black Women
Listen to Black Women is a one off shirt that is now part of the All Power collection. This piece was inspired by conversations had in my studio with local Black Feminist while working on a content series highlighting the diverse stories of San Diego’s Black community. That conversation, personal observations during the past year, and the writings of bell hooks and Audre Lorde helped shape the intention behind this piece.
While Black Women and Black Trans Folks have supported Black Men and have been a force for change throughout history, Black Women and Black Trans Folks do not receive the same level of support. In the continuous fight for freedom, we often lead with a tone of the patriarchy, which is a brother of white supremacy. In the words of Audre Lorde “The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House.” Meaning, we can’t be truly free while maintaining the elements of power that were introduced by white supremacy. In order to be free from the hold of white supremacy without also freeing ourselves from patriarchal masculinity.
