MEDUSA ⦻


Historically women have always been ahead of the pack, but centuries of history as well as the present day has taught us that men will continuously try to control the power and narrative of women and their bodies. Medusa was known as the most beautiful woman in the world for her time, who turned into the woman with the “hair full of snakes” whose mere glance would turn men to stone.

With inspiration from Martin Bernal’s Black Athena and many different depictions of Medusa through popular media and culture I challenge the idea that this woman methodology was from an Afrocentric background and not an Eurocentric one, or that Medusa was a black woman.

Originally a high priestess for Athena, her beauty was so revered that it was compared to the likes of Athena and Aphrodite, who could not stand that a mortal challenge their beauty and thusly gave her the punishment of her hair / locs becoming snakes and her gaze turn all who see her to stone.

With this new piece my personal goal is to donate a part of the proceeds to  a black woman reproductive rights and social justice organization that could use more support such as, In our own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda.

“In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda, in partnership with eight state Black women's Reproductive Justice organizations, works to ensure that all people have access to abortion care, contraceptive equity, and comprehensive sex education. As a Reproductive Justice organization, we approach these issues from a human rights perspective, incorporating the intersections of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and gender identity with the situational impacts of economics, politics, and culture that make up the lived experiences of Black women, femmes, girls, and gender-expansive people in America.”
