Mission: Art for Social Change.
Art for Social change to remind audiences of Art’s powerful healing properties in society’s dire times. All forms of Art enables us to unify, inspire, and deliver messages we each wish to exude.
A blog created by Amaris Jacobs also known as She to present various forms of Artistry and expressive outlets. A Creative and Experimental Artist, I intend to explore versatile elements in fields related to art, communication, and social Culture to cultivate social change. A journalism blog, in which I exhibit my mood, inspirations, and experiences to demonstrate standpoint and perspectives connected to gender, sexuality, race, and socio-cultural environment via performative language(s).

Love. Truth. Peace. Prosperity.
Alice Walker’s Definition of a “Womanist” from In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens: Womanist Prose Copyright 1983.
Due to intersectionality, not all Feminist theories are inclusive. I identify most with this:
1. From womanish. (Opp. of “girlish,” i.e. frivolous, irresponsible, not serious.) Feminist of color. “you acting womanish,” i.e., like a woman. Usually referring to outrageous, audacious, courageous or willful behavior. Wanting to know more and in greater depth than is considered “good” for one. Interested in grown up doings. Acting grown up. Being grown up. Interchangeable with another black folk expression: “You trying to be grown.” Responsible. In charge. Serious.
2. Also: A woman who loves other women, sexually and/or nonsexually. Appreciates and prefers women’s culture, women’s emotional flexibility (values tears as natural counterbalance of laughter), and women’s strength. Sometimes loves individual men, sexually and/or nonsexually. Committed to survival and wholeness of entire people, male and female. Not a separatist, except periodically, for health. Traditionally a universalist.
3. Loves music. Loves dance. Loves the moon. Loves the Spirit. Loves love and food and roundness. Loves struggle. Loves the Folk. Loves herself. Regardless.
4. Womanist is to feminist as purple is to lavender.

I met Jazmine back when we worked retail! Back when Breezy was my craze and wallpaper. So much has changed. She knows more of me than I’d like to admit. We’ve grown up together a lot this year, and it’s so refreshing to have her back in my life. One of the truest, most patient, and gentle young women I know! Wish this girl didn’t underestimate herself ~ love you. Thanks for always supporting my blog and being my creative collaborative partner. (I get nutty in my art)
