"Some problems we share as women, some we do not. You fear your children will grow up to join the patriarchy and testify against you; we fear our children will be dragged from a car and shot down in the street, and you will turn your backs on the reasons they are dying.”
― Audre Lorde

UNAPOLOGETICALLY BLACK

I’m Berta Rodrigues, originally from Portugal, raised in Wales but African runs through my blood.What inspired me to create this project? - I want black women out there to know that they are worthy, that they are beautiful, and that they are enough.Colorism is something that needs to be talked about just as much as racism. The representation for especially dark skin women is lacking and is upsetting.So it was important for me to gather these beautiful women together, standing strong as sisters and show our true beauty to the world.Growing up in predominantly white areas, I found myself constantly questioning my identity, and the lack of representation out there for black women has always created insecurities that I am happy that I am addressing and acknowledging now.It's time that we all come together, praise each other, love each other. We need to stand together now more than ever.
