#WeAreBlackHistory Photo Series Recreates Famous Images of Black Icons

The #WeAreBlackHistory editorial campaign is a beautiful tribute to 11 Black heroines. The photos, commissioned by the Style Influencers Group, features bloggers, vloggers and editors.

Here's what they had to say about the project:

The #WeAreBlackHistory movement was created to honor our history and foster a sense of unity among powerful black women voices in the digital space,” says co-founder Lexi Felder. “Each influencer has a personal connection to the legend they’re paying tribute to. They were selected because they’re making a tangible impact and shaping our history with their words, actions, and images,” says co-founder Christina Brown. “In no way are we claiming to be the next iteration of these icons. We’re simply paying homage to them for the way they’ve inspired us in our careers and beyond,” says co-founder Jessica C. Andrews.
