Documenting black life. As a black photographer, it’s our duty to document black life, force mainstream media to see our humanity. It’s yearly debate of whether “Black History Month” is really for us, and this year I have my doubts. While white supremacy can (and will) appropriate twenty-eight days out of the year, one thing they cannot take away is twenty-eight photographs of black life. ~ Johnny Silvercloud, 2017
