MAGICKAL PROJECT 2 O 5: THE IMAGES; ARTIST Shawna Mills
Just because we're Magic doesn't mean that we aren't real..." Jesse Williams
“Afrofuturist academics are looking at alien motifs as a progressive framework to examine how those who are alienated adopt modes of resistance and transformation.”
― Ytasha L. Womack, Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci-Fi and Fantasy Culture
Our goal with these pieces is to represent how Black folks tap their imagination to be MORE than “human.” The idea of grooming is to make one’s self look as imagined or desired; by implication, we want to show transformation into the step beyond-the MAGICKAL aspect of looking and being Black, the looks, the culture and the appeal.
