“Wind It” is a song out of Kahli Abdu’s new album titled “Book of Solomon”. (If you’re curious about how the wise 👑 and his beloved loved & got frisky, I highly recommend the Old Testament’s erotica. It’s delicious. 👅💦🍑🍆♥️)
Growing up in a Korean-American church, Jesus was a white man and so were the angels. Did that make God white?
No one taught that these biblical figures were dark skinned. Tbh I’m not sure if the whiteness was ever questioned. I only learned otherwise after leaving.
Like really? We couldn’t even draw our own angels Asian? (Side note: I just googled “asian angels.” Spoiler alert: It’s exactly what you’d expect. 😒😪)
Cut to: years of unlearning and challenging my own internalized ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ as Zahira Kelly-Cabrera accurately puts it.
Anyways, if Eve existed, I imagine that she was a black woman. And she was the best thing that happened to Eden. This video is part of remaking of the portraits on the church and museum walls I saw growing up and still see to this day when we speak of the “classics” and the divine.
From the first moment Kahli and I shared our stories, this project felt protected. The team is probably sick of hearing me say that. I said it a lot But their generosity and commitment are the reasons why I am certain of it. I’m honored to have been blessed with such collaboration.
Most importantly, I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed creating it. 💛
