hi, i’m tashira.
welcome to politics & fashion, a lifestyle blog i founded in 2011. at the time, i was fighting the narrative that art and fashion had no place in the black liberation movement. my more narrowly “political” peers were trying to convince me that my life-long fascination with black women’s adornment was frivolous. through my journey, i realized my love for my people and a bomb red lipstick weren’t mutually exclusive. i can be fly and woke. i can love lipstick and liberation.
politics & fashion has matured into a celebration of black womanhood with a twist of beauty, well-being and social justice. i hope you enjoy this space as much as i enjoy creating it.
