While standing and waiting in line, in-house artist Edreys overheard two women not of African descent chatting about how everyone shares their woes and opinions on social media and referred to the trend of ranting as “the new blk.”

Edreys pondered on the statement as he stood beside them and was struck with the notion as to how something like a trend becomes a cliche of being “the new black,” yet for those that are actually black or of African descent aren’t looked upon as favorably or seen as “cool” or the “it thing” to do.

“I am the new, old and forever black, for as long as I’m in this skin,” says artist Edreys.
