Let’s Big Up Ourselves With The Caribbean Justice Alliance!
Psssit, guess what is happening in Dominica right now… a revolution in modern storytelling, an assertion of a Caribbean radical subjectivity… We are getting our own superheroes oui. If you are into comics and animes, you are in for a treat with The Caribbean Justice Alliance project. What we like about this work is first of all the relatability of the characters. They are Caribbean and they rock natural hair in all shapes, styles and shades, just like you would find in the streets of Port of Spain, Bridgetown or Basseterre. Secondly, teenagers are fighting along with adults. This intergenerational cooperation makes it dynamic and progressive. We do not know exactly who the enemy is, but we can speculate that a team of proud black superheroes fighting along their youths is there to dismantle something big… like Babylon (Irie). We have to speculate because the creative team: Albert Pierre, Sean Francis and Daniel Pond, is keeping a tight seal on the story line. However they gave us indications on the characters, their powers and relationships and it sounds awesome! (they are such a tease). Here is what we gathered!
Similarly to most series with a plethora of characters — X Men, Naruto or Fairy Tale– there is a leader, in our case Lieutenant Yurumei from St Vincent, who dispatches the missions according to the hero’s power. The characters are indeed numerous and diverse with clear personality traits which presuppose great storylines!Read More

The Words We Use: What Google Can Teach You About Unprofessional Hairstyle and Self Love

The reason for this is that if you do an image search for “unprofessional hairstyles” it only returns images of black women but if you look for “professional hairstyles” it will return only images of white women.Read More
