“I’m that sexy ass” - the guy in the photo 😂😂😂
Under the Creative Justice banner, I get to teach photography and spoken word to youth who have been marginalized by society to use art as a tool for self-expression, exploration, and social action. I’m blessed to be a part of a team of artists who look to walk the journey with these youth. This photo was taken by a youth of a youth in our program. I’m very proud of all of them but these two I take a special liking to. Moral of the story during these times of attacking youth for having a voice: if you can’t do it right old people, let the youth figure it out. If you’re willing, then be with them as they figure it out. Don’t let your ego get in the way.

“Power in defense of freedom is greater than power in behalf of tyranny and oppression, because power, real power, comes from our conviction which produces action, uncompromising action” - Malcolm X —- Peace to the homies @mosesbread72 and @pelepels!

Big thanks to @rellbefree for the opportunity for the #youth of Creative Justice to talk about the effects of #incarceration on communities of color and his #abolitionist work.

I remember when I was in school, they would ask, 'What are you going to be when you grow up?' and then you'd have to draw a picture of it. I drew a picture of myself as a bride. - Gwen Stefani

In life, you have to take the pace that love goes. You don’t force it. You just don’t force love, you don’t force falling in love, you don’t force being in love – you just become. I don’t know how to say that in English, but you just feel it.
—Juan Pablo Galavis

"Life is a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge – meet it. Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is love – enjoy it.” -Sai Baba

Quincineras are a fascinating ritual of life. It's an opportunity to lift a young woman through family and community and show that there are many people who will support and love her through all the chapters of life. If done well. If not just done for show. If the core belief is to show her that she is unfuckwitable. Well while in Brooklyn, I ran into this lovely young woman for her quincinera. I wished her the best life and congratulated her on her journey into womanhood. People, hold your children in the light at all times. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all...ok y'all get it!

Love is a drug.

Meet @ekowzy! I met this young brotha while doing touristy things with the boss. We were up by West Central Park and decided to stop by Columbus Circle on the down to our hotel in Hell's Kitchen. I watched Ekow floss shots of the cigar, his watch, his gear etc for a while before asking him if I could take his portrait. He is one of the nicest folks I met on the street and although our conversation was limited, you could tell he had his shit together and really wanted to make his mark as a model in that industry. Get em Ekow and when we meet again let's do a more formal shoot! Peace y'all!

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.
