As we enter in the month of February most people observe Presidents Day, Black History and Valentine’s Day. This is not just a one month celebration. This is a lifetime of honoring a commitment; therefore, DimeofPearL (DOP) wants to acknowledge that this is the year to change this tradition. Black people must celebrate black people every single day of the year. While we love to continue spreading the magnificence of our ancestors and being aware of our history, it’s time to live in the moment in because black history is still being made today. DOP would like to launch a movement that demonstrates how black history is still being made every day.
“Black History in the Making” would like to capture the history in the making; by coming together and sharing our lives. DOP has arranged photo shoots at select locations in the DMV which are listed below. We ask that in participation for the photo shoots that you wear ALL BLACK and/ or a shirt or hoodie that symbolizes black power. If you have attended any past walks or marches and have collected signs or posters, please bring as many as you can. DOP would love to have as much representation as possible to make “Black History in the Making” a local and national movement.
Saturday- February 11th (Outside) the Hubert H. Humphrey Building
Corner of 3rd and Independence Ave Washington, DC 20204
Special shoutout to everyone who supported - whether you waited in that crazy line for over an hour, or didn't quite make it in... I appreciate that you showed up. I'm so grateful for the love that you all continue to show me and blessed to have such amazing supporters of my art and message. Words can't explain how it feels to have people connect with your art. To everyone that approached me to tell me something resonated with them, purchased a piece, asked me questions to delve a little deeper into the meaning behind my art or just took a card; the people who have been to EVERY show, continue to believe in me, and those who "got it" way before I even knew what my message was... thank you.
Please support me on my next endeavor

Wow - talk about an insightful, inspiring, rejuvenating trip!
I just returned from a week long stint in LA. At this point LA has become my second home (I'm there often because my boyfriend lives there), but this time was unique because I was able to share my art with a crowd that my shows in DC otherwise wouldn't reach. SPACE LA is a laid-back jam session for creative's to get together, share developing pieces, network and obviously... JAM! The energy in the SPACE was so welcoming and inspiring, and I'm truly grateful to Ms. Jacque Hammond for inviting me to be the highlighted artist for the month of January (way to kick of the new year!).
