Colorism. The paper bag test. Skin Bleaching.⠀ ⠀ These topics are a major part of the Afro cultural conversation. Creating an honest space for conversation and reflection in our community (aka real talk even when it gets tough) is the first step to finding more love within ourselves and our community. Our current issue of Radiant features powerful conversations around this topic. ⠀ ⠀ This South African documentary, A Gentle Magic, highlights the complexity of this topic, from male attention to health hazards and self-esteem. Check out the full trailer via the bio. ⠀ ⠀ @lerato_mbangeni, we would love to feature a Q&A with you! ⠀ ⠀ @liammaasante @ozmagazine, have you seen this doc yet?

#QuickTip: Instead of hitting

#QuickTip: Instead of hitting the snooze button in the mornings, take the extra 10 minutes to stretch. It's a great way to energize the morning and ease away any stress or tension from the previous day or a funky sleeping position. Other benefits include mental release and relaxation and greater range of movement throughout the day. Breathe. Stretch. Shake. 🤸🏾‍♀️ ⠀ ⠀ ph @ahmadbarber for #RadiantIssueNo10⠀ mua @heyyychristine ⠀ model @jaycina @ursulawiedmannmodels ⠀ styled by @raycmone⠀ ⠀ #RadiantWoman #RadiantHealth

Some like it hot, some not. As yoga continues to grow in popularity, you may be thinking it’s finally time to check it out and see if yoga is right for you. But where to begin, right? Is it an exercise, a religion, or a foreign language (savasana, asana, chaturanga ... oh my)? Do Africans even do yoga? Yes, we’ve been asked that!⠀ ⠀ So let’s talk about it. Aspiring yogis, what questions do you have about this ancient practice? Practicing yogis, how has yoga changed/improved your life? ⠀ ⠀ 📸@chocolako

Over the weekend, I was siftin

Over the weekend, I was sifting through my thoughts while strategizing for 2018 + a dope ass mantra came to mind; “Do not be distracted by the players, focus on the game.” I had a moment with myself + screamed Yassssssssss girl THAT IS IT! Often times we become thrown off by something someone said, or something someone did, but don’t allow your focus to divert to what isn’t contributing to the BIGGER PICTURE. When you stay focused on the game you can move strategically + not make moves based on outer lying factors. This shit is chess, not checkers. Don’t rush yourself, be thorough, stay focused. Happy Monday.✨

God and I: a Conversation in t

God and I: a Conversation in the Indian Ocean.. Yes, I do mean IN IT. ...I went to the balcony and sat on the steps leading into the water, and then it began. I began to cry. It was a quiet but heartfelt cry that I feel God designed to heal us. With tears dripping down my face I wrote, and I could taste the salty pain that I had been holding in all these years. I tried to keep quiet, as it was too early for anyone to be up in this paradise. I realized for the first time in my life how angry I was at God. I was angry that I had grown up in a country where emotional health is not talked about, so I had to figure out so many things on my own. Walking around scared, feeling that I was responsible for everything and that any success or failure in my life was solely because of my hard work or lack of it. It was always “What do I have to do next?” I could never really enjoy the moment or the fruits of my labor. I was angry at God for the injustices in the world — the wars, children being raped, people left hungry in so many African countries and beyond. I was angry with God for the racism and tribalism (they are the same to me) that keep humans separated... IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO READ MORE SEE BELOW.

During my first reiki experien

During my first reiki experience last week, my specialist + mentor @iam_rashidat, revealed that I need to do quite a bit of work on my Heart Chakra. Blockage in the heart chakra means that you lack empathy, you can’t forgive people + you lead with your head instead of your heart, often times you’re closed off to the idea of love.... all of which are true for me, undoubtedly. I am trying very hard to clear this with intent. I don’t want to hold unsustainable energy within myself. I was told to eat/drink foods of the color related to this chakra, which is green 💚 I have been meditating more, drinking green juices/teas, eating more green foods + carrying my crystals with me; clear quartz goes everywhere by default. I’m writing down my thoughts, having deep self reflections + choosing to move forward differently. Past experiences have made my heart cold. I can admit that now. I’m working. I’m growing.
