LOVE IT! Especially how you've got the flags of the Motherland draped around her head. Did you use Photoshop or Sketchbook Pro?

nice, Black people come from south america, africa, the caribbean, asia, europe, to the usa, but what of black people in the USA already , the descendents of the enslaved, where is their flag?

good question. i didnt include any asian flags either, nor did i include any european flags. and by definition blacks in europe would be descendants of the enslaved as well.

but to better answer your question, this piece is a representation of blacks in america. and if you look closely, the american flag is in the background of the overall picture. the point of the image was to show that "african americans" come from a diverse background of caribbean and african countries.

fair enough, just wondering:)
and in north and south america, not all, but most Blacks are descended from the enslaved, while in europe, most are descended from people who freely immigrated
