Black Beauty - Lupita Nyong'o's Speech
Black Lives Matter - Changing our cultural narrative.
The recent Black Lives Matter Movement has refocused our awareness of the need to encourage cultural change on many levels.
One of the ways I believe we can support this, is to help to change the narrative in Western culture. By encouraging more compassion to the experience of black people who have been under represented in many ways and so are less likely to feel accepted by wider society.
I hope on a societal level we can have an increase in compassion, empathy, representation, acceptance and support for black people.
"You can't eat beauty. You can't rely on how you look to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful, is compassion. For yourself, and for the people around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul."
