The Black experience is a spectrum, and like colour, it cannot be fully captured by a single lens. Our dreams are yellow, joyful and relentless, even when the future seems uncertain. Our confidence is red, strong and unshaken. The world is painted violet with our lives; we are the definition of popular culture. We set the curve. To be black at Western University is to be different and set apart. Throughout the Black History Month Issue, our stories, the best reflections of ourselves, are exposed, intimate and full-bodied. It is through these words and photos that we are seen, heard, and are able to stand firmly in our truth: in full form, and in living colour.
