The name and spirit of “KESHA”, is one of the numerous creative ways we reclaim ourselves after the identity theft of slavery. Stolen from the motherland, the cradle of civilization kings and queens, prince and princesses. Disconnected from their heritage and rightful place in history. Shackled to a criminal enterprise that brutalized them. Our holocaust lasted over 200 years. History could never make an account of how many lives were lost in passage through out South America, North America, and many Islands in the West Indies. Stripped of their identity and forbidden to use their ancestral names. “KESHA” Circumvents The Walls constructed for women of African descendent.
