#WeAreBlackHistory Photo Series Feature On ELLE.com
I am so excited to say that myself and my friends Jessica of GlamazonsBlog.com and Christina of LoveBrownSugar.com and I came together to put together a photo series where we would recreate images of iconic Black women for Black History Month! I literally had a small idea and Christina and Jessica took it to a whole other level!!!
Together we reached out to find the perfect team- a photographer, makeup artists, stylist, hair & nails and of course we needed a group of dope influencers! We reached out to our friends & colleagues and from there…Magic!
#WeAreBlackHistory features the founders of Style Influencers Group, bloggers Christina Brown (as Madame C.J. Walker), myself Lexi Felder (as Dorothy Dandridge) and Jessica C. Andrews (as Diahann Carroll) as well as the following influencers: natural hair vlogger Taren Guy (as Billie Holiday), Huffington Post Fashion and Beauty Editor Julee Wilson-Wareham (as Rosa Parks), Ebony.com Senior Editor Jamilah Lemieux (as Angela Davis), Essence.com Hair and Beauty Editor Deena Campbell (as Maya Angelou), style blogger and TV host Kela Walker (as Coretta Scott-King), feminist blogger and activist Feminista Jones (as Betty Shabazz), style blogger Jessie Adore (as Pearl Bailey) and Styleblazer Senior Editor Danielle Kwateng (as Bethann Hardison).
