Forgive. Love. Stomp. Believe.
Anna Dede Yokuah Teye from Ghana, and this is my mantra:

FORGIVE those who've forgotten you.
LOVE those who need you. STOMP on those who doubt you. BELIEVE in those who believe in you. Steps to an African euphoric state.  Follow me on twitter and on Instagram: @DedeYokuah

Hello!! I’m in need of a HUGE signal boost right now (and maybe a big reporting session) because my best friend is being blackmailed by her ex boyfriend. 

I’m not exactly sure what I’m supposed to put here, but I feel like this should be a warning for anyone who knows him and just a general informative thing. Jacob lives in Australia and is 16 years of age. They’ve had a very unhealthy relationship and he’s threatened sending out her nudes multiple times. Jacob is very manipulative and emotionally abusive towards her and even ends up pulling me and her other friends into not being able to do anything because it’ll end up hurting her. He’s made around 7 Twitter accounts to contact my friend in the times that she was trying to get out of the relationship.

In the picture above, he’s posted her nudes and threatened her.

ALL IM ASKING IS FOR YOU TO REPORT HIM ON EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING:

His Twitter accounts all start with @/neinthousand but the one that was most recently used was: @/neinthousand12 (but it was apparently deleted)

His Facebook account is:Jacob R Hynes, and he has more but I am unable to find them. They’re under Jacob Hynes and the like.

********** UPDATES!!! **********

First, we thought we had a compromise. 

Then this happened not even a minute after:

PLEASE CONTINUE REBLOGGING THIS. My friend is only 15 years of age and this is absolutely horrible. We’re getting ahold of local authorities but if you see the pictures anywhere (namely twitter) REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY.

Women in Africa and the Diaspora: Art is Adanma

Chidinma Dureke, affectionately called Chi-Chi by those close to her, is a fulltime artist and entrepreneur. She recently graduated from Frostburg State University in 2011, where she completed her BFA in Graphic Design and Painting. With Africa being her main inspiration, Chi-Chi fuses colors, textures, organic shapes, and traditional techniques to create images that are fresh, iconic, expressive and diverse. Chidinma pieces give a glimpse into her perspective of identity and different political, social, and economic issues, while relaying the message of hope for her continent of Africa. She has been compared to that of Picasso and Gauguin respectively by her college professors, and has been featured in many publications including the Washington Post, Essence and the 2013 issue of Hype Hair magazine. Chidinma expresses that the purpose of her work “is to break down cultural barriers and stereotypes. I choose to give African women and children a voice and display the pride and beauty that not only comes from Africa or Black America but from all cultures.”

Rise Africa had the opportunity to speak to the beautiful Chidinma and here’s what she had to say… (read more)
