The Black is Beautiful movement is about more than symbols of power and beauty—about more than African-Americans’ diverse complexions, facial features, hairstyles, and cultural consciousness in a multi-cultural society.

The anointing the apostle John speaks about—that which is embedded deeply within believers and that which teaches them all truth—is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
