As the artist behind this profound artwork, I invite you to delve into the intricate layers of identity and heritage that I have brought to life on this canvas. Through a masterful blend of colours and symbolic imagery, I aim to convey the struggles, resilience, and pride of individuals like myself who belong to a mixed-race community, affected by the painful history of the stolen generation.

This artwork is deeply personal, rooted in the understanding that our heritage shapes us in profound ways. It is a reflection of the attempts made by the government to sever our connection to our black ancestors, a legacy that flows through our blood. Despite these efforts, our blackness remains an indelible part of our identity, carrying the weight of history and serving as a testament to the oldest civilization in the world.

Within this piece, I celebrate and uplift fair-skinned individuals within our community who proudly embrace their blackness and find solace in their sense of belonging. It stands as a powerful representation of their unique experiences, validating their place in society and offering a platform for their stories to be heard. Furthermore, it serves as a source of support for those who may feel marginalised within our community, grappling with a sense of not being "black enough." I urge them to recognise that our ties, connections, and blackness are intrinsic to our identity and heritage, empowering them to embrace their roots and stand tall with pride.

This artwork beautifully illustrates the essence of a cup of tea. Just as a cup of tea remains true, no matter how much milk is added, our blackness remains an integral part of who we are, despite external perceptions or the complexities of our backgrounds. It calls for unity, acceptance, and an appreciation of the diverse tapestry that weaves together our shared human experience.

By displaying this artwork in your space, you will immerse yourself in a powerful reminder of the strength found in embracing our heritage, fostering inclusivity, and celebrating the inherent beauty of diversity. It is an invitation to join me on a journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and the profound pride that comes from acknowledging the threads of blackness that bind us together, even in the face of past injustices such as the stolen generation.
