Accompanying text from distant place:

A note to my black sistahs

My hair doesn’t need to be told to relax…
or need to be pressed, or weakened
So that it can fly in the wind
Or be flung over the shoulder
I’d rather carry the weight
Like a boulder

Means I’m strong enough
Bold enough
To walk along with my black sisters
Queens of Kemet
I feel the need to connect
With these roots
