Superstar Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz paid homage to The Black Panther Party, in a recent shoot with Cultured Magazine.
The musical couple recreated a photo of the late Eldridge Cleaver and ex-wife Kathleen Cleaver, taken by iconic photographer Gordon Parks.
Sporting afros and the signature look of the Black Panthers, this tribute is a remarkable statement considering the state of affairs the United States have been engaged in when it comes to racial issues.
Beyond the photographs the couple opened up about their marriage and how important communication is.
“We’ve been married seven years and we don’t fight, we don’t raise our voices,” Swizz said. “It’s all about communication.”
