Grief experts say we mourn what she stands for, and the pass. She was the head of state in the UK and 14 other Commonwealth nations.
The solemnity may be performed, or even overwrought, but the Queen’s death resonates because she was one of our last universal touchpoints.
When a news channel aired the sad news, my emotions had some what to do with the importance of the monarchy in my life, but also with the scale and grand gravity of the occasion.
I remember whilst on the princess trust program as a young designer I was inspired by the Queens passion and exquisite dress sense, In the moment I dreamed to distinguish our Majesty wearing one of the LGN designs one day. “I brought the hat outside Buckingham your Majesty the Queen Elizabeth 2nd. Please accept as a token of my admiration your highness.

The Souls of Black Folk is a well-known work of African-American literature by activist W.E.B. Du Bois. The book, published in 1903, contains several essays on race, some of which had been previously published in Atlantic Monthly magazine. Du Bois drew from his own experiences to develop this groundbreaking work on being African-American in American society.

Because if you know the history of the whole concept of whiteness, if you know the history of the concept of the white race, where it came from and for what reason, you know it was a trick, and it’s worked brilliantly.
