In this BlackGirlMagic Episode, Ekemini and Christina are at the table with Natalie Lauren Sims. They talk about Natalie’s hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma on the heels of the centennial anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre. Learn more about Natalie Lauren Sims: Art is where we wander until our voice finds us. And like all truth, it finds us eventually. As stubborn as a sunrise, arriving to set the captives of darkness free, Natalie Lauren’s work is the “Art of Liberation.”
In the spirit of unrelenting audacity inherited from her hometown, the same womb that birthed Black Wall Street; Natalie Lauren is a multi-sensory storyteller. Advocating for untold stories of black women is a burden too significant to be restricted to one medium. So Natalie has set out to master a mixed media form of storytelling, utilizing Songwriting, Painting, and Creative Direction. Her art is an homage created to disrupt the silence and the monolithic identity seeking to oppress black women into a digestible narrative for everyone else but themselves. Natalie aims to curate a safe space for black women to explore the fullness of their humanity found in radical BEING instead of consistent DOING.
