One of my favorite books is “All the Women Are White, All the Blacks Are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave.” 

When I look at Warriors and Superheroes, I sometimes feel like this book title.  I want to show Black Women as brave, courageous, and strong superheroes and warriors. 

Of course, there are Black Women Warriors and Superheroes but I’m challenging the world by creating more because, well, I want to see more. 

I want to see:

Afro Puff Heroes

Brown-Skinned Curvy Heroes, 

& Dreadlocked Powerhouse Heroes

I’m taking the time to create the hero I wanted to see when I was kid and I make no apologies to anyone about it.
