Our roots can either mold us or tie us down. The cultural background that we each inherit is a factor so strong that, when inspired in a correct way can create a beautiful result in any area of one’s life. But when we let that same inheritance chain us, it becomes a limit rather than a progressive entity. When the foundation of your island is supported by the sweat, blood and tears of persons enslaved by an ideology of superiority there is a necessity to understand this, but not allow it to imprison your mind.
Roots is inspired by the appreciation of ancestries as rich as the diversity within us. In the midst of all the hatred seen, we want to walk in solidarity with those facing oppression. Just because it wasn't televised before doesn't mean it wasn't occurring.
By the way, Black Lives Matter.
