I’ve been having a wonderful back-and-forth with the founder of BlacqueWidowDolls.com, Jinga Willis. She and I both had visions of paying homage to the unique and extraordinary beauty of women of color. And while we take different approaches, it is inspiring to see that we both have no problems breaking through the limitations of a Eurocentric aesthetic to redefine the standards that allows the blesssings we know to be seen by all.
I’ve learned so much from her and she has inspired me in ways she is not even aware of at this point. Soon we will do an interview with her about her site and her vision. In the meantime, this is her homage to ours.
Make sure you check out her site at http://blacquewidowdolls.com
