Eunique J. Gibson started the "Because of Them, We Can" project in 2013 to honor African-Americans who have been pioneers in their fields and to help children see all the possibilities that lie ahead of them.

I'll use Ms. Gibson's own words from another video to describe it: "It's about empowering these kids and injecting this new wave of self-esteem and self-worth by understanding what's already been done, what's being done, and what can be done."
