Our team spent this beautiful Sunday at the Broad Museum, where just kicked off art exhibition called “Soul of the Nation”. Amazing exhibit chronicling the artistic movement of black artists between 1963-1983. The emphasis on black power, pride, love and excellence was on display. Everyone should see this important artistic movement in American history. 🙌🏿

The first Black Men to ever draw Blood against a Confederate Military trained Guerilla Unit - were 150 Brothers from the Greater Kansas City Area. Bates County to be specific. Just research, "The Battle of Island Mound." Outnumbered and against all odds - they unified and pummeled a ruthless, heartless and violent militia of Confederate Soldiers. Its very sad this history isn't common knowledge and even more sad that nearly 150 years later we couldnt be more un-unified and more violent toward eachother in My City. 😞😞😐 🤔 Think about this...Black Men(Women) from KCMO shaped the trajectory of our entire country through their unity and bravery...that's enough for Me to display humbleness and peace toward the next Man or Woman...we could all very easily be the descendants of The Hero's of The Battle Island Mound. #BlackRoyalty #KingCity #KC #BlackHistory #IslandMound #CivilWar

Do you know the history of Clementine Hunter? Clementine is pronounced “Clementeen.” She was a self-taught folk artist from the Cane River, Louisiana region, who lived and worked on the Melrose Plantation. Ms. Hunter is the first African-American artist to have a solo exhibition at the present-day New Orleans Museum of Art.🎨💫 :
She couldn’t read or write but told her story through her art. She always used a pencil to sketch then go back and paint in oils, using a cardboard box of soap as her canvas. If it was in her mind, she painted it. Ms. Hunter was a documentarian that didn’t give in to the whims of others. She told her story from an African American vantage point. 🖼 :

She picked cotton and was a house servant for 20 years and painted late at night, earning  75 cents for a days work , her paintings earned 50 cent per painting. Northwestern State University featured her art in an exhibit but Jim Crow laws prevented her from going to see them. She was finally able to see the exhibit in 1985.
:
Ms. Hunter died at 101 years old and always presented a dignified image of her race, revealing narratives of family, friends, and life on Melrose Plantation.  She’s the most famous artist to come from the Melrose Plantation. 🎞 :
I highly recommend you watch  Clementine Hunter’s World documentary and learn more about her life and artistry.

DID YOU KNOW...?? Ida B. Wells died today, March 25th, 1931, four months before her 69th birthday in Chicago, Illinois. Two days prior she was out shopping and, feeling I'll, she took to her bed and died of uremic poisoning, a kidney disease, suddenly.
.
One of my favorite Women of Inspiration,  Ida represents SINGLE-MINDED TENACITY and her quote, "One had better die fighting against injustice than to die like a dog or rat in a trap."
.
How will you be tenacious today?
.
Ida B. Wells is one of 12 highlighted Women of Inpiration in our 2019 Calendar and Empowerment Journal. Available together for $35 at www.customartsstudio.com/woi

What makes you jump out of bed in the morning and want to strive abit harder than you did the day before? If you asked me that some few months ago I would probably have told you its because I want to create a better life for me which is still true but lately that has shifted. The uncertainity of life makes me want to wake up and actually live life. The fact that I could be alive today and dead in the next one hour makes me want to live a better life. I am realising that every single minute that I am alive is a gift. I have always known that or heard of it but I have never quite understood  and internalised it. Learning to focus on what matters what you would regret the most if you died right now and have not done that. Whether that to you means leaving your kids without a means to mould their lives or having more fun in life or being of more service to the people that are around you whatever that is to you. Those things are motivation to strive to be better. The mere fact that you don't know whether tomorrow you will be here is enough reason to live as though today was your last day.

Hattie McDaniel, Oscar winner for Gone With The Wind. In my opinion she was the best thing in it and the only reason I would every watch that film again. "I did my best.
