@styleinfluencers group is truly honored to announce the second installment of the #WeAreBlackHistory photo series presented by @myafricanpride . We would like to thank the creatives who worked tirelessly to bring this project to life including photography director @photosbyrome , stylist @ettiket , makeup artist @alanawrightmakeup , grooming expert @akeeshathehairdiva1 of @tekniqueagency and videographer @joe_chea. We would also like to sincerely thank our subjects for their time and consideration.
The Blackest Black history month of all time continues with this dope tribute to historic Black figures.
Style Influencers paired icons of the past with modern-day style trendsetters, activists and internet media juggernauts.
Everyone from Black Lives Matter activist Deray Mckesson to Ebony’s Jamilah Lamieux posed as trailblazers of the arts, music, and civil rights movement.
The striking campaign was presented by African Pride and made possible by the leading ladies of Style Influencers: Jessica Andrews, Christina Brown & Lexi Felder.
The women launched the campaign last year and have since added many photos to the collection–an effort to link the leaders of the the past with leaders of the present.
You can find more pictures using the social hashtag #WeAreBlackHistory.
What do you think of the collection?
