Take a look at this amazing photo campaign entitled “Because of Them We Can,” where kids are styled to embody great African American figures in history. The idea originally started out as an idea for Black History Month, then evolved into an ongoing project.
Photographer Eunique J. Gibson realized that only doing 28 installments just wouldn’t be enough, and continued her work everyday for a full year. Gibson has started a Kickstarter to fund her campaign and turn it into a book. She hopes to raise $80,000 by mid June, and has so far raised a little over $9,000. Enjoy!!
