See The Incredible Black Women Honored By These Girls In This Adorable Set Of Portraits

All young people deserve inspiring women to look up to — and young black girls have some incredible women to look up to, as shown in this wonderful project "Because of Them, We Can" by Eunique Jones Gibson. Below are just 18 of the many portraits Eunique has taken of young boys and girls dressed as inspiring, accomplished people. But Eunique isn't simply dressing up cute children as well-known leaders, thinkers, and artists. She's inspiring a new generation to believe in themselves. Eunique commented that she wanted children to immerse themselves with these messages of excellence, accomplishment, and responsibility and said the project is "committed to encourage and empower people of all ages and hues to dream out loud and reimagine themselves as greater than they are, simply by connecting the dots between the past, the present and the future." Hear what she has to say in her own words in the video, and then see a small selection of her posters below. After that, do yourself a favor and order a ton of her posters because they are just the *best*.
