The intent is to consistently provide inspiration, 

encouragement and hope for the next generation. 

Inspiration, encouragement and hope that things will change for the better.

They are one while at the same time individuals.

They understand that the greatest contribution they will ever make is to each other and to their community.

When they collaborate life is made but the difference between them and others is the context.

In this context the child will not grow in dysfunction causing resentment, it will not be neglected causing trauma and it will not feel abandoned causing mental & emotional instability.

This is the difference.

This is UNITY.

A Letter To My Children

The world is and has been heading in a dangerous direction.

The direction where people want to blame everything outside the home 

for things that happen inside the home.

In reality, the home is the foundation to both the problem and the solution.

With this piece, people are now forced to look at the concept of the black family differently.

Allow me to introduce you to,

The Family

The Family: Volume I

In the artwork, each letter represents a certain facet within the black community.

It is and was my intention that we acknowledge the reality of our situation then 

do something to improve it for the next generation.

The T symbolizes mental/emotional health and our vision of success

the R represents the black excellence gallery that serves an example of inspiration and hope, 

the U signifies the acquisition of wealth by illegal activity which is glorified but heavily policed, 

the T alludes to the acquisition of wealth by sports and our lack of success strategies, 

the H epitomizes the manipulation of films and music which is used to mislead our youth, and 

the S stands for the criminal justice system and how it's designed to dismantle the black family.


The individual in the background is the end result, 

to be used as a commodity for private labor as they helplessly watch their children 

go down the same path of generational dysfunction.

TRUTHS: Volume I

Kwanzaa is the time when we reflect on our use of the basic principles, 

share and enjoy the fruits of our labor & 

recommit ourselves to the collective attainment of a better life for our family, our community and our people.

Presented in the artwork is a Kinara which is a seven-space candle holder used during Kwanzaa. 

The candle holder represents the original stalk from which the African people originated.

The black candle symbolizes African people themselves, 

the three red candles represent the struggle of blood shed in the past & 

the three green candles represent the Earth and the abundance of possibilities the future holds.

The mishumaa saba (seven candles) stand for the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa;

1. Umoja (Unity)

2. Kujichagulia (Self-Determination)

3. Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility)

4. Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics)

5. Nia (Purpose)

6. Kuumba (Creativity)

7. Imani (Faith)

Leadership

What are the features of a great leader?

What is needed to be effective as you empower those around you?

A leader needs to hear honesty, see progress and smell integrity. 

They spew responsibility & accountability as well as 

nourishment & upliftment as they convey consistent action.

They lead by example while representing truth, stability and support

S.T.E.M.

S.T.E.M. is an acronym that stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. 

Through S.T.E.M., students develop key skills including; 

problem solving, teamwork and collaboration as well as tech use. 

S.T.E.M. is important because it promotes creativity and out-of-the-box thinking that 

prioritizes hands-on learning needed for long term success.

The goal is that we lead by example as we provide the next generation with what they deserve. 

They deserve a chance to do better than the generation before them as they are 

supported, encouraged, guided and loved.

Manifestation

Where do you see yourself in 20 years? How about 10 or 5?

The goal is that we envision ourselves in our career, in our home and 

owning our own businesses so that when the time comes to capitalize we would have prepared, 

meditated and studied for the next level. 

This is the manifestation.

Growth and Progress

How do you assess your growth and progress?

Is progress when you start to make money or when people start to follow you?

Is growth when you start to produce higher quality work or when the work gets easier to create?

We think growth and progress is reflecting internally as you 

remind yourself of where you started and where it will lead you and your loved ones for generations. 

To remind yourself of how your work is influencing history as well as 

the narrative of your community who watches you as an example. 

This is growth and progress.

The Culture

A culture represents the customs, arts, and achievements of a social group regarded collectively.

When you look at the culture, what do you see?

I see distractions, violence and crime used to systematically deprive the community of organization, structure and economic power. 

Organization, structure and economic power needed to enact change both socially and legislatively. Because as a community we have been doing the same things for decades.

We have rioted but still wear the same brands.

We have voted but still listen to the same music.

We have lectured but still buy the same merchandise.

To this day one of the most successful political and social movements was 

the Montgomery bus boycott because it tied economic power to 

a social movement that demanded legislative change.

If history has taught us anything it has taught us that if you want change, 

use your economic power. Use the power of the collective dollar to put pressure 

on the politicians, the churches, the artists, the influencers, the athletes and 

the individuals in positions of power because when you affect people’s profit they will 

make the changes necessary to keep that bottom line in order.

Look at the culture, study it and embrace all it entails.

Does your dollar support it or does it go toward changing it for the better?

Economic Independence

Economic independence is when a community can provide the necessary amenities 

needed to sustain life without the assistance from outside sources.

Health clinics (for dental and physical health), 

Schools (for education), Manufacturing (for goods and services), 

Banks (for loans and insurance), Farms (for produce and animal product), 

Stores (to house the farm's stock) and 

Law Enforcement (to maintain order and manage public safety).

When we decide to funnel the billions we spend a year toward 

these different avenues we will position ourselves and 

our children's children for long-term stability within a community 

where they will be safe, prioritized and empowered.

This is Economic Independence.

Love

How do you know that it’s true?

When they say to you that my love is only for you?

Love

What does it mean?

Is it when they buy expensive things?

Or when they support your dreams?

Love

Is time without rushing.

Support and love without lustfully touching.

When moments are enormous.

And the world seems so dormant.

INTENTIONS

What are yours?

Cause even family can be a double edged sword.

So adore and love everything about yours.

Keep the mind at home and not on world tours.

Love

Is staying true and wanting more for them

than you want for you.

Love

How do you know that it’s true?

When they say to you?

That I need your love like food

Love

What does it mean?

Is when it’s just you and me?

Or when it’s not you and me it’s we?

Intentions

As you experience trauma in life, how do you cope? 

What coping skills do you use to pick yourself up when you are feeling 

unstable and unbalanced or unmotivated and insecure? 

How do you regain your center?

Coping skills are tools that help you tolerate, minimize, and deal with stressful situations in life. 

Managing your stress well can help you feel better physically, emotionally, spiritually, and psychologically.

These designs were created to strengthen our mental and emotional health as 

we educate the community on the difference between progressive behaviors and regressive behaviors, 

because in reality there is no in between.

These are coping skills.

Coping Skills

Buy flowers while they can still smell them and 

spend uninterrupted time with them instead of being distracted on your phone.

If you know where they are pull up. 

Don’t tell them you are coming just arrive then give them ample time and attention.

If you think about them call them instead of texting them.

If you want to tell them something 

tell them now and don’t wait for the right time because the right time doesn’t exist.

Just don’t wait until you are dressed in all black,

don’t wait until you see them lowered into the ground, 

don’t wait until they are no longer breathing. 

Whatever you do just, don’t wait until you are buying them flowers.

Who are you when no one is watching?

Who is the person you see in the mirror late at night when everything around you is asleep?

This collection is focused on mental and emotional health. 

It is focused on staying in tune with our inner self while keeping the right energy

I feel now is the time, the time more than ever to be in tune with yourself internally.

Society has people desperately seeking attention and spending money to be something we will rarely be, 

Loved.

Being loved starts and ends within.

Love is to look in the mirror and to address the trauma, hurt and pain.

Love is to accept what you see then

decide to do better on a consistent basis.

Understand that will lie to you because lying is profitable.

They will deceive you because deceit is advantageous.

They will even manipulate you to your detriment

because manipulation is lucrative.

Knowing this reality, why not start and end within?

Giving no excuses let us start right now.

Right here and now in this moment before it's gone because I feel that you are more than ready.

I want you to go look in a mirror or in a camera and say.

"I am the problem and the solution to all of my issues."

Say it three times giving the responsibility, energy and power to the right person.

You.

Congratulations on this major step.

The question is, what will you do next?
