The side of Michael Jackson they don’t show you: his ACTUAL RACE.
On 6th February 1984, after winning an unprecedented number of AMA awards Michael spoke to black publication JET magazine about people in his life he was thankful for; Stevie Wonder, who expresses pride of race in his music.
“That’s why I love Stevie Wonder’s album called Songs in The Key of Life… He had a song called Black Man and I just jumped up screaming when I heard that record because he’s showing the world what the Black man has done and what other races have done… He named it Black Man and all these people who have got the album sing it. And that’s the best way to bring about the truth.”

Lina Viktor is a New York-based fine artist & painter from London who uses patterns, symbolism, and iconography to address grand archetypes and concepts of infinity, greatness, and transcendence. Her acuminous paintings are composed of original black, white, and gold patterns that are gilded with 24-karat gold directly onto the canvas, amplifying the ornate sensibility that informs the framework of her riotous, powerful images.
Since her recent emergence, she has exhibited her work alongside Andy Warhol, Takashi Murakami, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Peter Beard, Tom Sachs, & Ryan McGinley, and has sold all of her paintings to date. (source)

The first of a three-part series, Black Matter Vol. 1 is for the Black Women, specifically, of the world, and the Black men of the world secondly, with the rest of the world’s citizen’s to follow in succession. It is an uplifting and inspirational peace, with controversial themes at the forefront, like racism, abandonment, and feminism, and really gets to the heart of the position Black Women and men find themselves in today. Nonetheless, it is the core of Hip-Hop in its essence; traditional high-frequency beats, no rhymes taken off of any song, and pure life breathed into every record.
