In a world where men are consistently idolized, Id like to use my platform not to idolize woman
but to appreciate their everyday
fight to do something more than what the norm expects of them.
They say its a mans world
But it would be nothing without a WOMAN’s touch.
To put Woman on a pedestal highly, back where they belong
Is for nations to never suffer again!
Today my SheeRo is
Ty Black, also known as Queen Blizzy age 27 from East New York, Brooklyn,
known for her Hip Hop, activism, and community work.
Here are a few questions i asked to help get to know her better.
How do you use what you do to create social justice awareness to your people?
By placing social topics in my music, activism, and community work. Spreading awareness, knowledge,
and solutions for social justice in all avenues I embark on.
What does culture mean to you ?
Culture means a way a life. A bond with communities and race.
How do you feel about the current white washing of black and brown communities? And what
message/advice do you have for white people moving in?
I feel, just like damn near everything else in America, gentrification is a way to keep black and brown people
oppressed. I also feel that after years of this, we should be tired of the cycle, and fighting harder
then ever against it. I don’t have any advice for white people moving in. I do have advice for the
black and brown people being pushed out. Unite and build.
Understand that all this oppression is coming from the same source. The people united can never be defeated.
What are some of the projects you a are currently working on?
June 17th makes 11 months since the murder of Eric Garner. Im assisting Jewel, the mother of
Eric’s 1 year old daughter with an action. This action is powerful and creative. People will be organizing
together to spell out Eric Garner on the ground with their bodies. This is something I encourage everyone to partake in.
For more info like the page facebook.com/LegacyGarner.
Another program I’m working on is “Warrior Queen Wednesdays”. Stay updated on facebook.com/TyBlizzyBlack
As powerful as your voice is, is their anything you fear?
What I ultimately fear is staying still. Not growing and progressing. Life is constant and about evolution.
If you aren’t growing, your dead.
What does black and brown success mean to you ? How does it look ?
Black and brown success is black and brown people being Creatively great and powerful. No oppression, and no
boundaries of fear. Peace and unity among one another.
