Cultura | As Tradições e a Arte de um Povo

A Cultura é uma daquelas palavras cujo conceito é infinitamente menor que suas definições, tamanha a abrangência que podemos encontrar através dela. As ações que envolvem o conhecimento, as crenças, as tradições e costumes de um povo são a sua cultura. O conjunto destas ações formam a riqueza cultural do mundo e dão origem ás suas memórias.

Confissões | Minha Paixão pela África.

Eu já revelei em várias matérias minhas sobre o meu encanto pela cultura dos Europeus, de como as tradições, a Arte e a diversidade do povo da Europa me encantam, mas pela África o que sinto é amor mesmo. Amor de uma forma inexplicável, um carinho que vem não sei de onde, mas que me leva a uma empatia sem dimensões. Talvez pelo fato de acreditar nas minhas raízes afros, pela minha raça ou mesmo pelo meu próprio sofrimento eu me identifique tanto com os africanos. Se isoladamente as pessoas sofrem com o r... read more »

A Rant on Single Stories

About a week ago, my class commenced by watching a ted talk video of Chimamanda Adichie’s “The Danger of a Single Story”. She happens to be one of the most inspiring writers whose work I have always had the pleasure of indulging my frontal lobe. When I watched this video, I felt myself remembering and reliving my childhood. It was like she was telling my story, except for that Mariah Carey album lol. Although, I have had experience in a similar situation where people would ask me if I understood the Afri... read more »

A Bantu Knotted Week

Photo by Jaclin Paul There's this issue that has been brewing in my mind for some time now. This issue is on certain African hairstyles, such as, Bantu knots or plaiting (cornrows). Lately I've been noticing that I don't see a lot of women wearing these hairstyles with pride. It seems like the only time we do these hairstyles is when we're either trying to curl, crochet or weave hair in. Bantu knots are known especially for curling the hair, while the plaited hair is used for curling, crochet or weaves... read more »

OUTFITS: SOLID STAPLES.

The sun is always amazing but sooner or later I start missing the cold weather where by I get to wear my jackets and trench's.

OUTFITS: DOTS OF LIFE.

Have you ever thought how much time we put into something all year round? Sometimes all I think about is how am going to push the bar from 60% to 101% and make it all count.

But this post is all about taking a tiny break and reflecting.
