Black Is Beautiful!

Deddeh Howard and her photographer boyfriend recreated imagery to show black can be just as beautiful as the usual images shown in advertising.

These photos prove that black is equally as beautiful. For women of color, it comes down to having the same opportunities as their counterparts to position themselves for major advertising campaigns. In our society, too often do we default to Eurocentric standards of beauty instead of embracing our differences as a human species and allowing all sizes, shapes and skin color to shine.
