Usain Bolt to adorn mural in Brooklyn, New York

superstar and world record holder Usain Bolt’s face is set to adorn a mural in a New York community.

The mural is being painted in the Crown Heights neighbourhood in the Flatbush region of Brooklyn, New York.

According to DNAinfo.com, a local online news entity in  Brooklyn, work on the mural of sports greats started this week and is being painted by locals from the Crown Heights Youth Collective.

Bolt will join soccer star Mia Hamm and boxer Mohammed Ali on the mural among other famous faces.

According to DNAinfo.com, the mural has been a neighbourhood staple, displayed in the community for at least five years, and the organisation is looking to spruce it up in time for fall.

It will reportedly take another week or so to complete and will include about 15 athletes in total.

God Is A Black Woman says Dylan Chenfeld statement Met God, And Guess What? She’s Black! (Dun! Dun! Dun!)

It started with five words.

Dylan Chenfeld heard a phrase “I Met God, She’s Black” and he thought it was a pretty awesome notion God could be anything other than a white dude competing with Rick Rubin for the world’s longest beard. So the New York native decided to challenge the unspoken, yet widely accepted social norm by putting those five words on a T-shirt.

The result of his one-man declaration? A grassroots following of teens, young adults and celebs alike who wanted to give society and its rules the finger. Chenfeld chopped it up with GiantLife  about his T-shirt line, his upcoming projects and his future goals.

While Dylan didn’t intend on starting a conversation about religion, race and black women, at least he did it with style.
