The Black Mirror: A Black Model stands up for Diversity

So, the other day, I was watching  The Real on BET and on set walked Deddeh Howard, a beautiful black model I have been following on Social Media since the start of the year.

She affirmed that the agencies acknowledged her beauty but also stated that they had enough black models, which in fact were just a couple.

In collaboration with her partner, she decided to do something about it by recreating some of the biggest AD  campaigns featuring white supermodels, with herself striking the exact same post in same clothes. For me, this was incredibly inspiring, as she sought to change the narrative by acting instead of complaining. Today, she’s on BBC, Good Morning America and other stations to discuss the issue. With her permission, I share her blog post and images on the project.

Enjoy.
