When my brilliant friend Emine Aslan shared her thoughts on wearing black in one of her posts I immediately knew I wanted to draw them. Because I can relate 100%: It took me long to understand that avoiding black was not me thinking “it doesn’t suit me” – I just didn’t want to evoke specific stereotypical images.
Racism restricts us even in the seemingly most ordinary ways. Breaking free from these limits can be so empowering – even if it’s about the color of your outfit.
In the end: Self-confidence is the best outfit 😉
