“Those that don’t got it, can’t show it. Those that got it, can’t hide it.” –Zora Neale Hurston
Celebrating Black Womanhood week continues today on Twenties Unscripted by highlighting the work of two black female photographers and two poets (one of whom you already know…me!) as we examine what it means to be black women through the lens and through words. I respect, admire and adore each of these women and their work, the way they see the world and the ways in which they force us to see the world differently.
Photography by Dejah K. Greene and Stacy-Ann Ellis
