“And so our mothers and grandmothers have, more often than not anonymously, handed on the creative spark, the seed of the flower they themselves never hoped to see: or like a sealed letter they could not plainly read.”–Alice Walker, In Search of our Mother’ Gardens
Creativity is our superpower. Creativity is ancestral. Creativity is directly linked to joy. The Black Women + Creativity interview series showcases how Black women define uniquely define and express creativity. The intention of this series is to inspire Black women of all backgrounds to light their creative spark and express it unbothered in the world.
The micro-interviews focus on 2 simple questions:
1. What does it mean to be creative?
2. What advice/wisdom/encouragement/insight would you give to Black women about navigating their own creative process?
What comes from these two answers is brilliant and beautiful.
