Breathtakingly dripping in black beauty, intricately saturated with melanin, extravagantly immersed in honey. Our African women are inspired by the Sahara Desert. Hot in their demeanour as they embody strength and power in the harshest of environments as they face insurmountable odds. Historically overlooked and under-appreciated the African woman’s power and strength is now overpowering and screaming to the universe, “we are bold, beautiful and resilient!”
There is a man whose name we don't say aloud. Not on these streets, no. I fear to write it because who knows if he'll like it or not? He's like that. One moment he's laughing, the next there's bullets flying in the air.
But he's not as careless as I make him out. Forgive me, ZIKIWE. We call him the merciful punisher. He goes after those who hurt the unprotected. The vulnerable and weak. He looks out for us, but you'll never know it.
Why would you? He's the meanest looking cat on these streets. So much for a soft interior. He's all metal, cigars and that damn rum.
The “hi-top” was a trend symbolizing the golden era of Hip hop and urban contemporary music between the 1980s and the early 1990s. It was common among young black people between 1986 and 1993, extending its influence to the mid 1990s.
With a mixture of modern outfits and “old school” hairstyles we bring to you an updated look into traditional African (inspired) hairstyles that resonate with the modern age. I introduce to you our first character

THE GOLDEN SKIN
What is it with Race? Why is it that we are so defined by skin color? Why is one race superior than the other? Is it so hard to value different races than what we are? What if all skins were gold would we value each other more or is there something deeper than just skin color?

When people see things as beautiful,
ugliness is created.
When people see things as good,
evil is created.
Being and non-being produce each other.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low oppose each other.
Fore and aft follow each other.
