At the studio today. Tired/sleepy as hell, however, I have managed to get something worthwhile done and that is an amazing feeling.

THIS is Black history.
Black actors, TAKE NOTE. If you don’t know who these people are, RESEARCH THEM! That’s your homework, lol.
They paved the way for us. Without them and their sacrifices and achievements there would be no space for us to freely create as Black artists.
We stand on their shoulders.
