Black liberation

Black creatives leave colonized religion feeling so frustrated about who they are, why they are here and what to do with their full creative potential. You submit your gift to an institution that sets the parameters and context for its usage and uses your gift while claiming it's for the glory of God and not about you. You are a creative slave beholden to a system that wants your productivity more than it wants you, it wants your holiness more than it wants your wholeness. Then your faith crashes and burns inevitably, upon the penetrating realisation that your naivety got you fucked in the name of God. That's why we needed to make black liberation our full priority. We were always more than we were made to feel and freedom is the only thing I want in God.
