Hi, I’m Melissa

Welcome to my Interactive website! I am a third-year student at the University of Kent studying Cultural Studies and Social Anthropology. 

Welcome to my interactive Website!

'Black is' tries to capture the essence of black identity and within this premise, it touches on cultural assimilation and colourism. Within this website, you will explore where my inspiration stemmed from. 

"Identity is a prison you can never escape, but the only way to redeem your past is not to run from it but to understand and use it as a foundation to grow."

 ― Jay Z

Black is Beautiful, Black is Gold
