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

Hello there. I’m Johnny Silvercloud, and I’ve decided to make that one thing I done last year a thing that’s done every year, on every black history month. So here we go, 28 photos documenting black life, for February 2018.

  1. The photos are awesome but they make me sad. They show black America as a second nation, with its own greatness, dignity, joy, and all but what I’d love to see is an America that’s not racist.

    1. We all love to see an America that’s not racist, but due to the fact that the majority of white people in America chooses whiteness or white privilege, or white supremacy first (even over being gay or a woman!) we as black people will always have to love ourselves. If we do not love ourselves, no one will.
