Powerful Images of Children Posing as Black History Icons

Powerful Images of Children Posing as Black History Icons
By Jamie

Eunique Jones Gibson started the Because of Them, We Can campaign during Black History Month in 2013.

Her goal was simple: to positively share African American history in a way that tackles racial stereotypes and empowers the youth who pose and view the images.

The campaign was so successful, it was clear that this project needed to be extended to 365 days (and now beyond). One year later, and Gibson has continued her campaign with inspiring new images.
