Jaylon Goode Art: Black is Beautiful

“In my art and drawings I mainly try to depict black people and other people of color because my whole life I’ve been told to feel inferior because of my race and the color of my skin and I wanna show how beautiful we are! I also feel like people of color have to make our own art and tell our own stories because white people’s representations of us are usually stereotypical or fetishistic. If we want proper representations of ourselves we have to do it ourselves, you know?”
