Zakiya Iman Markland  It’s a process.

ALSO! Earlier this year I had a teeny tiny real-life acting role in my first film EVER and it’s also GOING TO #SUNDANCE!
🥳
The Sound of Silence will premiere in competition at Sundance in January! #Sundance2019 #thesoundofsilencefilm

My homegirl ZORA HOWARD (2nd to the right with the braids) ✨co-wrote and starred✨ in a film entitled #Premature, and it’s going to #Sundance, people!!! @prematurefilm @zorahowardIFshehadaninstagram #proud #friendsmakingmoves 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗 can’t wait for the world to see this Harlemite magic! #YES #fortheancestors

And so it goes, La Négrophilie will not advance to the final round of the @samuelfrenchnyc OOBFestival.
💫
So it goes, we thank the Samuel French institution and all moving parts that made yesterday’s performance possible! Much continued success to the playwrights that move forward; I hope your work continues to flourish. Truly.
💫
And so it goes, waves don’t die. If you are out there speaking your truth in unconventional ways, stay steadfast. Remember you are the wave(>>>THIS is esp. for my marginalized groups of people☄️) the world is often slow to ride the wave with a little ferocity, a lotta depth, and some unique looking seaweed...until they get woke, drink from that holy water, recognize the realness, and package that shit as the new “exotic” organic rejuvenative seaweed strips now sold exclusively in whole foods for only people w access to receive. You are the wave, my friend.
💫
And so 👏🏿 it 👏🏿 goes 👏🏿 after a long sporadic international tour spanning 10months with La Négrophilie, and my very good hittas @tatianapandianii and @mrva929 I hibernate to work on self, and push this baby in new, yet unfound ways. Love you errybody!! •••

Mr. Baldwin said “To be a Negro in this [world] and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time.” Most days I REALLY want to be one of these trees.

a word:☝🏿This world was and still ain’t set up to love and adore the black woman in all her GLORY. But through it all we been here, and are still here— kicking down doors with smiles, literally birthing the dopest of culture (a nod to @iamcardib ? perhaps), nurturing our communities, and dare I say saving the damn world, all the while finding the strength to deeply love our own beautiful selves. Okay! #FACTS #wemaketheimpossiblepossibledaily
