In spite of our displacement, multitude of hues and backgrounds, our friendships are stronger than the chains that bound us together. This connection is strengthened through our fraternities, sororities and tribal communities.
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
In this image, two women lean on each other in an affectionate embrace. Despite their close bond, they convey a duality of experiences. One wears her hair neatly bound in an intricate wrap, while the other’s blows like a fiery mane. Their expressions are matched to their hairstyling, with the woman on the left sharing a reserved smile and careful gaze, and her companion closing her eyes in an open beam. Their connection embodies the bond that unifies individuals across their diverse cultures, religions, and backgrounds.
