Invisible women: Black Britons struggle to be heard
And she is not alone in believing that unfair depictions and constant scrutiny plague black women especially, belittling them in the public eyeand forcing them into subordinate social positions.
"We can’t talk about Jim Crow or apartheid. But like blacks globally, we are both visible and invisible," said Heidi Mirza, a professor at the University of London who teaches equalities studies in education. "We are let into desegregated spaces and constantly watched. We remain totally ignored and excluded."

Marrakech by Incognito 

It’s close to midnight
Packed my bags and I’m leaving
Ride the night train
To where I know You’re gonna be waiting

And yesterday will fade like snow in the sunlight
Melt away from my memory
Through the darkness until I feel the light’s caress
I’m on my way to the streets of Marrakech

The room is crowded
I can feel my body heat rising
Above the voices
The echoes of a train approaching

A colorful parade like flames in the dark night
Leads the way to my fantasy
Through the darkness until I feel the light’s caress
I’m on my way to the streets of Marrakech

And yesterday will fade like snow in the sunlight
I’m on my way; yes I’m on my way
I’m on my way to the streets of Marrakech

Marrakech
The streets of Marrakech
Marrakech
The streets of Marrakech

"A flowering plant, henna is used as a dye, particularly in hair colouring, and temporary body art known as mehndi (also written as mehendi or mehandi). The dye is extracted from the dried leaf and petioles of the plant. Mehndi is the application of henna as a temporary form of skin decoration. It is usually drawn on the hands and feet, where the designs will last the longest. "
