BLACK QUEENS / BLACK KINGS book signing & launch
I love volunteering my services for things I absolutely believe in and support with all of my heart. When I was referred to this event, my heart screamed "YES!". Danielle Murrell Cox is making BIG waves. When I read about her and the story behind her BLACK QUEENS and BLACK KINGS colouring books I knew I couldn't pass up the chance to photograph her book signing event.
BLACK QUEENS and BLACK KINGS are colouring books filled with positive affirmations and inspiring, powerful images of women/girls and men/boys. Phrases like DREAM BIG and SHINE BRIGHT are alternated between cute avatar illustrations.
I was so touched to witness all of this unfold. Every child that approached Danielle said that they saw themselves in her book. A little girl with pompom hair, a boy saying that an avatar looked like his dad. There were so many moments that welled my eyes up with tears ~ to see those little kids' eyes light up, and so see them grin from ear to ear, really brought joy to my heart. I could really feel their happiness. They saw themselves in those illustrations.
Everyone in this world deserves to be represented, recognized, heard, and seen for who they are.
I feel so grateful to have been a part of this amazing event, and without further ado, here are some of the photos!
