    In 2011, Alan Guei beat 7 of his classmates in a free-throw contest at their Compton high school and won $40,000. When he later learned he had earned a full-ride college basketball scholarship, he donated his entire cash prize to the other competitors so they’d be able to follow their dreams along with him.

    Erykah Badu by LIONWOLF.

    South African-based art and photography duo LIONWOLF recently shot artist Erykah Badu in this traditional Ndebele setting.

    My only question: is this appropriative?

    As a paranormal/horror blogger I can assure you these child abuse ads are the most scariest and saddest thing I’ve ever seen. Probably because things like that are happening RIGHT NOW at this very INSTANT. 

    And it’s horrifying but hopefully these ads bring more attention towards it. 

    I got these from this buzzfeed article. You can view more ads and the sources for these ads there as well. 

    powerful

    so important.

    The girl in the hands dress just completely fucked me up..

    War Witch

    “When we take the magic milk from the tree, we can see things. We see ghosts all over. When I see the ghosts it helps me do the job, because I see the ghosts. I don’t see the red meat leaking red on the ground. All I see are the ghosts that walk in the forest. There are many, many ghosts here, You wouldn’t believe. Too many ghosts. Even when I sleep, I see ghosts inside my head.”

    This film is told from the perspective of one young African girl’s journey to reclaim her life in the face of war and sexual assault and it looks visually stunning while doing it. 

    Primarily filmed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, War Witch is a 2012 drama written & directed by Kim Nguyen.

It’s an intimate, powerful moment television doesn’t often show: A black woman removing all the elements white supremacy tells her she has to wear to be beautiful, successful, powerful." (x)
