This has literally been the best and littest Black History Month I’ve ever witnessed. Still high from @blackpanther and all the amazing black women whom I look to trailblazing opportunities, leadership, and exemplifying the qualities of a true role model. From admirable and relatable women such as @yvonneorji@issarae and @traceeellisross to women in my Detroit community such as @meaganvoguist and @melissarbutler making things possible and showing that a win for us individually is a win for us all. I am so proud and couldn’t be happier to be in an era where we would literally be our ancestors’ wildest dreams. Still basking in this Black History moment and the month isn’t even over yet. ✊🏾 Happy Black History Month #WakandaForever

- Martin Luther King Jr . Eu tenho um sonho que um dia esta nação se levantará e viverá o verdadeiro significado de sua crença - nós celebraremos estas verdades e elas serão claras para todos, que os homens são criados iguais.
Eu tenho um sonho que um dia nas colinas vermelhas da Geórgia os filhos dos descendentes de escravos e os filhos dos desdentes dos donos de escravos poderão se sentar junto à mesa da fraternidade.
Eu tenho um sonho que um dia, até mesmo no estado de Mississippi, um estado que transpira com o calor da injustiça, que transpira com o calor de opressão, será transformado em um oásis de liberdade e justiça.
Eu tenho um sonho que minhas quatro pequenas crianças vão um dia viver em uma nação onde elas não serão julgadas pela cor da pele, mas pelo conteúdo de seu caráter. Eu tenho um sonho hoje! #martinlutherking#ihaveadream#mlkday#martinlutherkingday

In Ken McFarlane’s (@365ken) portrait work, two common threads weave through: strength and dignity. “What is often highlighted in our communities is not necessarily the only thing, the best thing or the things that we know to be true,” says the photographer, based in Philadelphia. Reclaiming representations of the black community is important to Ken. “I believe in giving agency or utilizing our own agency in reflecting ourselves in the larger sense,” he explains. “What Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others sacrificed allows me to have the mindset and the perspective that I have. My goal is really to open new windows of opportunity so that new heroes and heroines can be known.”
This post is in honor of #MLKDAY in the United States. Watch our story to see more from Ken.
