Black Love is Revolutionary
As LuvJonez2018 approaches we begin our month long celebration by featuring an image set we released last year. Black Love Is Revolutionary feturing earthSista SimoneMonet with earthBrotha Sherod. To see the image set click 'here.
The video above is a collection of a few of the images with 'r/evolution is love'by D'bi featuring Assat Shakur as the soundtrack. The verse speaks true...
“we need a r/evolution of the mind. we need a r/evolution of the heart. we need a r/evolution of the spirit. the power of the people is stronger than any weapon. a people’s r/evolution can’t be stopped. we need to be weapons of mass construction. weapons of mass love. it’s not enough just to change the system. we need to change ourselves. we have got to make this world user friendly. user friendly…r/evolution means treating your mate as a friend and an equal. r/evolution is sexy. r/evolution means respecting and learning from your children. r/evolution is beautiful. r/evolution means protecting the people. the plants. the animals. the air. the water. r/evolution means saving this planet.
r/evolution is love.”

In the Yoruba pantheon, Ṣango is the ideal lover for Oshun as her fierce protector. Ṣango provides Divine and positive masculine energy to balance well with Oshun's Divine feminine energy. As part of coming to terms with the imbalance and challenges of modern relationships today, OSHUN searches for the Divine and positive masculine energy in this video.
Oshun is the "unseen mother present at every gathering", because she is the Yoruba understanding of the cosmological forces of water, moisture, and attraction. Manhattan-based vocalists Niambi Sala and Thandiwe sing and perform for the purpose of spreading her essence and the essences of her sisters, specifically Yemaya, through music. Together they are OSHUN, a duo characterized by yellow and blue (the colors of Oshun and Yemaya, respectively), soul, hip-hop, community service, and love.

Want spend thirty minutes in the Garden?
Often, we hear of conversations of inspiration with sistas about the Garden. Photographers are inspired by a sista’s presence and/or she is curious and inspired by the images in Pangea and this leads to discussions creating captures of afrosensual glamour, possibly as earthSistas. It takes a level of boldness to step in front of the camera, baring your natural beauty for the world to see. And such an action is not for everyone. But every woman should have the opportunity to explore her inner diva. Thirty Minutes in the Garden is a way to do that from an afrosensual perspective. CLICK on the images below to see sistas who already have and ask yourself: Would you want spend thirty minutes in the Garden?
