Women of Gold
Everyday women of color are told they are unfit to love, unworthy, ugly and useless. All of these are lies. We have done so much for humanity and although the world fails to give credit it's due it's essential that we credit and find the significance in ourselves. This blog is dedicated to the voice, culture and beauty of the forgotten women, the women of gold.

Just so you know the oldest person in America is a black woman living in Detroit named Jeralean Talley. That’s right - she was born in 1899. That’s three centuries she’s lived in. She was on  bowling team till she was 104. She still goes to church. This woman saw prohibition, women’s suffrage, the civil rights movement, two world wars, a list of other dumb shit, all the way to the birth of the internet and of her great-great grandson, a child who’s 14 months old.

Why black girls wearing flower crowns is important.

luvyourselfsomeesteem:

Symbolic meanings of black or darkness: evil, death, demonic, empty, dirty, nothingness, silence, depression, negative emotions, scary.

Sterotype of black girls/women: angry, ghetto, harsh, ugly, militant, loud, animalistic, desperate, struggle, manly, difficult, mean.

Symbolic meanings of flowers: pretty, delicate, happiness, tranquility, simplistic, growth, love, purity, innocence, peaceful, birth, soft.

Black girls + flowers = confusion or odd.

Blackness and flowers are considered complete opposites by usual definition. The thing is black girls can and do posses all the qualities of a flower.

Wear flowers, confuse motherfuckers.
