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!
