How do we internalize history and its connections with current events?
What are the taxing effects whether we fight or stay neutral?
We’re all being taxed and tolled daily, put through an exceedingly dull grinder, where the parts, gears, spaces and processes we endure are racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic…to say the least. We’re spat out, never whole, constantly going through this grinding and molding process again and again.
What does the internal Black humanity, our existence, resemble as a portrait?
How do we weigh the joy needed and deserved against the pain and trauma we must manage?
