Black men, you are soft. You are fly as fuck and you know it. You are intimate. You are champions of our community. Your brotherhood lifts us and moves us forward. 

BROTHER is a project dedicated to fully humanizing the black male body and highlighting the intimacy of the black male bond. In all of their complexities, in their joy, sensitivity, pain and beauty alike. This is fully embodied, abundant black male joy and brotherhood.

DREAMS 

Director/DP/Editor: Makayla Nicole (@blk.wmn)

Creative Director: Idara Ekpoh (@ohyeahitsidy)

Talent: Gabriella Lawrence (@gabriella_lawrence_) + Daniella Nyenyeri (@dachribe)

Dreams are not distant alternate realities of what we could be. They are visions of us living in the fullness of our purpose. Dreams ignite our passion and awaken our potential. However, often times, dreams cannot be accomplished alone. When our gifts collide, our dreams come undone.

From the concept to the execution, “Dreams” is a visual representation of the power and beauty of black women unifying in sisterhood. Happy Women’s History Month.
