Queen of Hindustan | Daughter of the King @therajakumari 🙌🏼👸🏽 still buzzing about this guys ❤️ . Making a crown for Raja has been on my vision board for a quite a few years now and it really happened 🔥 I am looking forward to creating more bespoke pieces for powerful, inspiring and badass women! Who do you want to see next in an APL crown??? 👑
I read it once, I read it again, and then in the hope of bedding truths into knowledge I painted page after page with everlasting strokes of Fluro! (Who ever thought highlighting could be so poetic eh? ;p) 🙏🏽 Thankyou @akalamusic for shattering the myth of meritocracy... There’s a generation of us who’ve grown up broke n’ brown or black, displaced / disenfranchised, on the periphery of violence, and crime - and we’ve struggled to make sense of why we feel lost and frustrated even though we escaped... then finally along comes someone who not only understands but shares our story - in that there is sympathy and security - an answer and a resolution.... 😶 There is system designed to convert the disadvantaged into statistics and I’d argue the lesser discussed issue of class is on par if not a bigger challenge than race (although inherently linked)... I encourage everyone to read this book! * * #natives#akala#race#politics#identity#britain#colonisation#slavery#ghetto#london#brexit#woke#diversity#ethnic#britishasian#blackbritish
Mic check, one, two: podcast ready for you. This time we delve into the issues faced by south Asian men and mental health. Me and @beingbrownpodcast discuss the stigma, barriers to accessing help, the role of identity and wider contexts. I hope this sparks a conversation.
