black people taking selfies and posting them online means normalizing black skin and black beauty! it means redefining what is beautiful and acceptable! it means getting our faces out there to be appreciated and loved without needing to wait to be called by a casting director for a movie, tv show, or fashion show! it’s self-love of everything they told us was ugly!
