Women Honor Icons Through #WeAreBlackHistory
on 13 February 2015
Some of today's top digital influencers are honoring past and present figures in a new movement called #WeAreBlackHistory. The project is a poignant photo series that sees women of color from the digital world replicating portraits of legends like Billie Holiday, Rosa Parks and Angela Davis. Through the campaign, the creators hope to pay tribute to these iconic women's contributions, knowing that "the best tribute we can give them is to continue to break down barriers for black women, and shape history for the generations to come."
