This amazing photo campaign for kids where African-American children pose as the great African Americans of our past and present that helped PoC to become who they are now, started out as a project for Black History Month. The photographer behind the project, Eunique J. Gibson, then realized that doing this for only 28 days out of the month of February couldn’t and wouldn’t do.
Extending it to a full year where every day, she would post a new photograph up on social networks, Gibson started the Kickstarter to turn her photo series into a book.
The “Because of Them, We Can…” project started out as a photo campaign that Eunique J. Gibson launched during Black History Month. The goal was to inspire and empower our kids to be great by connecting the dots between them and the individuals past and present who have blazed and continue to blaze trails.by
