Description

Black Beauty – Sheena Rose

Estimated Value: $4000

 

Black Beauty is a reminder to all Black Women that we are beautiful. Society and the media tend to portray us in lower imagery and ideas of what we really are. Acknowledging ourselves, worth, value, and beauty as black women. It is a celebration of our existence. 

 

You are beautiful to remember that, 

You define who you are,

You are gorgeous remember that,

You define who you are,

You are the backbone to everything,

You are the rock, the pearls, the soil.

 

Black Beauty was a diary to remind me that I am beautiful, that I am strong and I got this. While working on this piece, I wanted this to be a message for other women, especially black women. That they too are beautiful.
