Kickstart This: Because of Them, We Can…

February 6, 2014

It’s February, and that means Black History Month! Today I want to show you a new Kickstarter project that is equal parts adorable and inspiring.

Because of Them, We Can… started as a photo project where kids were dressed up as famous people of color throughout history that have made an impact on our world. It was meant to “inspire and empower our kids to be great by connecting the dots between them and the individuals past and present who have blazed and continue to blaze trails.” It’s more much needed representation of positive black role models for kids.

That representation matters. 

The overwhelming response stretched the project from a month to a year, and now photographer Eunique Jones Gibson wants to turn it into a book!
