Photographer Captured Photos Of Black Girls With Their Natural Hair And Results Are Stunning

Embrace your natural beauty.

That is what the series “Afro Art” is trying to show us. You see, the people behind this series are a husband and wife duo, Regis and Kahran. They show young girls in elaborate costumes and hairstyles.

We feel that it is so important for kids of color to be able to see positive images that look like them in the media. Unfortunately the lack of diversity often plays into the stereotypes that they are not ‘good enough’ and often forces kids to have low self-esteem.
