Jamaican Women - "Colour Me Strength"

by Lexine "TheXpressionnist" Green
(Montego Bay, St. James, Jamaica)


Contest Entry #013 - Colour Me Strength


The Rastafarian community, wherever it goes, is quickly recognized as a Jamaican group, therefore, a Rastafarian female is used as the subject in this photograph.

This photograph is entitled "Colour Me Strength" as it depicts the strength of our nation's beautiful black women and the struggles they have survived.

It shows an individual who is rather bold and comfortable in her own skin and regardless of the troubles she faces she still has the ability to remain strong: some character traits of our heroine, Nanny.

This photograph was taken as a means of motivating our Jamaican young black women to appreciate the colour of their skin and to help them to remember that they are beautiful just the way they are. Black is beauty!

Her entire image screams "Jamaican" . When traveling, one has to question other nation's people of their origin, but once you see a Jamaican woman you know. We live to stand out in any crowd and we often make a mark. I am Jamaican woman. I love the my thick, curly hair and the colour of my skin! I will forever live to stand out!

Queen
by: John Blenkiron

At any nyabingi gathering of the Rastafarian faith (if you should be so fortunate to attend one) the Rasta "Queens", or wives, are very distinctive by their regal bearing. They move with pride and dignity, yet with humbleness rather than haughtiness or arrogance.
In this portrait I see such a Queen.

STOP!
by: Helen

We white ones go to the tanning salon because we want to have a darker skin color. I've heard about the crazy Jamaican girls who destroy their skin with dubious cosmetics. Stop this madness! Black is really beautiful!!!
