Until the lion has his historian, the hunter will always be the hero.

African Proverb 

This proverb exists in different forms in many parts of Africa

"Until lions have their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter" (Igbo, Nigeria).

"Until lions start writing down their own stories, the hunters will always be the heroes" (Kenya and Zimbabwe).

Black/African history has always being taught/told from the perspective of White American/European colonisers. We need to reclaim our history and culture. No more white African Queens, Kings and Gods, there needs to be a true representation of African history and culture in the media.

BRITISH VOGUE IS TRASH AND WRONG FOR GIVING CARA DELEVINGNE HER SECOND COVER

natasha-polyjuice:

British Vogue putting cara delevingne on the September cover is wrong. Here’s why:
-when was the last time a model of colour was on the cover? (By herself not in a group?)
-what has cara delevingne done that had been significant in the last year besides be an annoying coked up rich girl who is…

BRITISH VOGUE IS TRASH AND WRONG FOR GIVING CARA DELEVINGNE HER SECOND COVER

British Vogue putting cara delevingne on the September cover is wrong. Here’s why:
-when was the last time a model of colour was on the cover? (By herself not in a group?)
-what has cara delevingne done that had been significant in the last year besides be an annoying coked up rich girl who is only here because she is an annoying coked up rich girl?
-2013/2014 has been a HUGE year for some new faces/new icons. For example:
-malaika firth- her show season was immaculate. She racked up a HUGE number of shows whilst being a black model in an industry set up to see her and others fail.+her photos for burberry have been stunning.
-neelam gill- FIRST South Asian Burberry model EVER in a Burberry campaign+show. In an industry almost devoid of South Asian models she has conquered it and smashed it.
-jourdan dunn- her personality is so rich, and she has managed to maintain her space as an icon in an industry so obsessed with Eurocentric beauty for years. She’s also a mum, a model and a chef with her own series on YouTube, she has accomplished so much in such a short space of time for such a young age.

There are so many other models who are more deserving than cara, but I’ve listed these three as a) they’re all British b) all models of colour and c) I know that they are genuinely nice people.

All of these models are of colour, have achieved such monumental things, but British vogue want to hand the cover to a basic white girl who’s only there because of her family ties. All three of the aforementioned women are the most loveliest people you could meet (I have met them and interact with them on social media etc) and yet they won’t get offered a cover.
