In honor of Black history month, everything that is black and beautiful and my love of art; First Saturday’s at the Brooklyn Museum was a must this month. The Brooklyn museum is magnanimous, filled with beautiful sculptures, paintings and great rotating exhibits.
Walking into the edifice Saturday night (2/4/17) we were greeted with the syncopated melodies of OSHUN. We arrived late so we spent way too long waiting in lines for coat checks and drinks, however waiting wasn’t too bad because we were watching live art. People of all shapes, sizes, colors, and backgrounds were dressed beautifully showcasing their inner beauty on the outside. Truly emulating my definition of FEARLESS. As the DJs took the stage, for the final two hours of the night hosted by Everyday People, a group of at least 500 people danced and sang along to popular jams ranging from the 80s to today. It was truly a sight to see.
One thing I’ve learned while living in New York is that you cannot be afraid to be yourself, and you should be yourself. When you feel comfortable it shows. While we didn’t actually make it through the museum this time I was blessed to have living pieces of art dance and sing by my side.
Three women going through life.
