atalie Alexia, Founder of the Global Movement Love is the True Black™ is wildly passionate about changing the world by bringing deeper levels of awareness and transformation into the general space. Natalie is known as the slightly hyperactive British girl who likes scribbling on people. Natalie grew up the daughter of an Entrepreneur in 6 countries on 3 continents. She went to 11 schools giving her a global mindset, when you move that much you learn pretty quick how to connect with people. Natalie is a protege of Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul) He describes her as “An awesome delight of a person, passionate, courageous a full out player with a big vision and the willingness to do whatever it takes to make it happen.” Natalie has spent the last 18 months traveling the globe speaking and training at many events helping people to delve into greater levels of self awareness most notably: The Transformational Leadership Council, The Association of Transformational Leaders and Awesomeness Fest conferences. Love is The True Black™ is a values-based photographic movement designed to ignite greater compassion and awareness. The project began by asking people the question:If you had a chance to share a message with the world, and could guarantee everyone would both hear and understand you what would you say?
We have photographed over 2000 people, from transformational leaders, business people, children, pro athletes, celebrities, homeless, women’s prisoners, police and firefighters. People from over 40 different countries, races, religions. What we began to notice is that we were speaking to peoples values as humanity.
Our beliefs divide us, our values unite us. If you put a priest a Buddhist Monk and a Rabbi in a room and asked them to discuss their beliefs, they would agree on nothing. If you asked them to discuss their values they would likely agree on everything. With this project our aim is to bring into sharp focus through the use of simple images, what unites us as humanity.
