Black women who made the Time 100 List For 2014. Creative singer, dancer, artist, philanthropist and feminist Beyoncé, creative outspoken actor, artist and feminist Kerry Washington, tennis legend, philanthropist and business owner Serena WilliamsChicagoan and now head of U.N. World Food Programme Ertharin CousinNigerian economist and past Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Ugandan activist Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe, South African human rights lawyer Thuli Madonsela, and Kenyan tech guru Ory Okolloh. 

Laverne Cox and Janet Mock DIDN’T make the list though. Clearly both had a major impact in 2013. Both have been outspoken about Black trans women and trans women of colour’s rights and lives, both have created remarkable and important art and both have been influential and highly visible. They should’ve been there. Easily.

Beyoncé made the Time 100 List in 2013 as well, but this year has the cover after a successful and influential year in 2013, from her Super Bowl performance, to her world tour, to her incredible visual album BEYONCÉ, to being more outspoken with her feminist politics through her music, and through other projects—some I like (speaking, writing, fundraising, philanthropy), some I’ve critiqued (i.e. #BanBossy/Lean In)—all while being committed to her family, her marriage to Jay-Z and motherhood to Blue Ivy

Several Black men made the list as well, including two of my personal faves, Oscar winning film director Steve McQueen and Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman

As I wrote about yesterday, there is a DIFFERENCE between the legitimate desire for representation of Black women’s humanity in the media while still creating our own media (as ignoring the mainstream does not erase harmful messages about us are placed there) and "oh that’s White approval!" This distinction and understanding of how media representation impacts us is important.

haruka, watercolor on paper
4 years of classical schooling and 5 years of professional illustration evidently couldn’t train the sailor moon fan art out of me.
i don’t know if anything will make me happier than watching old sailor moon movies while painting neptune and uranus.  that series was one of the best things about childhood.  no joke.
why can’t there be more entertainment about kick ass girls?  and what’s with every villain also being female?  i’m sure this show is doused in metaphor about femininity…or is some social commentary about women in modernity.  maybe i’m just frustrated by the ubiquity of the “weak boy protagonist” :P  
my point is, i love sailor moon.  everyone is strong and at least a little gay.  and that’s the best.
i hadn’t worked in real media since last july and i’m surprised how much more satisfying it is to paint in real life than digitally.
