brittsense I created the Power of Melanin series to show the strength & different levels of beauty that my people embody. My people struggle physically but even more mentally. When you are raised up in broken communities without any resources or a blueprint in society to guide you through your journey, it's much harder to maneuver & build a foundation. When you are ruled under a system that is meant to destroy you & not build you up, It makes you question your worth. When your identity has been erased and replaced with misguided truths, You feel lost & angry. A lot of us are out in the world creating a foundation from nothing & that is something I will always give us credit for. Whether your 9 to 5 is owning a business, Creating art, playing sports, getting an education, making music or selling drugs, the common denominator is survival & trying to make sense of situations that make you feel hopeless. We learn from the individuals & environment around us & when that is constantly destroyed you feel defeated & trapped. The mission of this series is to REMIND you of the Power, beauty, strength, but most importantly the LOVE in the pain we may often feel daily. It's to show you that no matter HOW MUCH we go through, WE still shine & will always shine in all that we do because Melanin is Real Power. Our hair, Communication & everyday movement is because of the Melanin within our skin. My mission is to also recreate the Media so our stories are included because we are the Original creators in the first place. We are soulful people & we are people that make sacrifices for those that we love. Never underestimate the power that you have, Gain Knowledge become aware & embrace it. #brittsense #brittsensedotcom #222melanin #222forgottencities #222queens 9h

brittsense Much unconditional Love towards the black panthers for being one of my inspirations to continue documenting my people all over this earth. Gangsters, Criminals, drug dealers & whatever else society likes to label them as to discredit all the Love & support they showed towards the community, They were disciplined, knowledgeable, United & their mission was to ride for their people. Daily I say to myself I can't wait for my people to get back to their roots & sometimes I even get slightly discouraged because the odds always seem to be against us, Then I think about the black panthers & how it started with a couple of individuals that saw the bigger picture. They built foundations so EVERYONE can prosper & most importantly they planted the seed. For
Me it's not about being the best photographer, it's about documenting as many of our stories so that the youth after me have a foundation to grow from. It's about capturing the truths that are tainted & turned into lies, but most importantly it's about making my people Feel empowered under all conditions & removing the numbness that keeps us from building. No matter how much history they try to erase we have always mattered & will always matter & I thank the black panthers for reminding me of that. Shouts to Oakland.
