I hear them all, the voices of my ancestors whispering on a wistful breeze
I heed them all, descending proverbs of wisdom amongst the falling leaves
Wispy, wandering, whirling words whistle wonderfully through the trees
Black Beautiful is a poetic journey
through Black community, Black feminism, and Black Love.

A new day is stirring. Big changes, needed changes are underway everywhere around us.
Will you respond or will you change?

Music is the water that grows my garden.
Songs are little seeds, hidden in fertile ground.
And then, one day, life abounds.

Music is like water that surround me. Sometimes it rushes, sometimes it drips. But it always flows.
At times the flurry of notes and fury of theory can overtake and nearly drown me.
But I don't have to fight. Just lie back and float.

Art should make us uncomfortable. It should stretch the bounds the familiar into the expanse of the unknown.
Art should chasten the creator, challenge the audience, and convict the soul.

Sometimes I get down. But I always get back up.
Sometimes things go sideways. But I always move forward.
I find motivation in life's setbacks and I find inspiration in life's breakthroughs.
Always upward, mostly forwards, never backwards.

Today, we hear about keeping "those people" out. We hear about keeping "them" in their place. We hear about keeping "her" silent.
Everything around us seems to be spinning out of control. Society seems to be devolving in chaos.
We must resist. We must persist. We must insist that our leaders build bridges, not walls.

I'm so glad to share my new album with the world.
Black Beautiful is a poetic journey through Black community, feminism, and love. The album weaves a tapestried story about the struggles and triumphs of Black Americans, today.
