This piece speaks to black pride, black hope and black royalty. The king of beasts (the lion) crowns an average boy with untamed hair, as if bestowing greatness unto him while presenting said greatness to the audience. What some people may call “nappy headed” others may see as a symbol of strength, tenacity, wisdom and even respect. The boy is a symbol of being comfortable in one’s own image; not being moved by others’ perception of him as he is sure of his identity. Thus, his hair is adorned with jewels, to the likeness of a king’s crown, which speaks to not only his royalty, but reinforces the greatness to be claimed.
