Black roses are a symbol of new beginnings, growth and change.
For 400+ years PoC (Black, brown, Indigenous) have been forced to live a life of oppression. Through our naturally resilient nature however, we have managed to take pride in our culture and traditions, but we continue to live in a society that dictates how we are perceived by the world.
The changes we seek are not only from within but from the society that we live in. Our black roses need to come in the form personal indoctrination and domestication, society's view on black lives (including BIPoC) with an emphasis on not only being alive, but the QUALITY of living. Our black roses need to normalize black lives which include culture, wellness, mental health, art, literature, music + entertainment, style, language and so much more, as black but as part of the whole community, not separately categorized or "other."
Sometimes it takes a village to maintain a beautiful garden. Each bud and bloom has a specific need to allow it to flourish and even then, it takes time to grow. But with love, kindness, dedication and care, miraculous transformation happens right before our eyes.
THE BLACK HABITS PROJECT is a Soul Purpose initiative, created by BIPoC who are tired of "the same old" and are ready to take a stand, answer the Ancestral call and be one of the many voices required for much needed systemic change. But we can't do it alone and need your help!
We are grateful for any and all support. Currency in all its forms is needed to continue to uplift our people. We greatly value the currency of time, the currency of dollars, the currency of prayers, rituals and positive vibes and the currency of goods.
We humbly thank you for whatever you are able to offer the project and will continue to do the work as long as it is necessary (...so always!)
