It is such an honor to collaborate with an exceptional artist collective – Zanderland Productions and Eternal Blackness Art. Headed by Zana Sanders and Khaldun Oluwa, the collective is revolutionizing the way we use art to engage and empower those within the African Diaspora. You’re probably already familiar with Khaldun, the prolific oil painter who I interviewed back in February. With his spectacular masterpieces and Zana’s compelling video production, they are ushering in a new era of Black ingenuity.
They challenge us to think critically about mainstream media and how corporate conglomerates continually use it to ravage the Black psyche. It is definitely another form of psychological warfare that aids in our oppression. With this understanding, the dynamic duo and I are on a mission to dictate our own narrative and produce culturally-rich projects that exposes our divine truth as members of the global Black community. I’m excited to embark on this new journey with Zanderland Productions and Eternal Blackness Art as we continue to enlighten, revitalize, and uplift our people. Get a glimpse of their creative genius by viewing some of their projects below.
