black HERstory

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA | FEBRUARY 2020


photography— Laura Jett Walker | Creative direction— basic.


february is dedicated to celebrating and commemorating the long, complicated history of Black america.


while much of the focus is (rightly) directed toward memorializing the civil rights era and centuries of enslavement, Black history didn't end with the past— Black history is still being made every day.


the individuals featured in this campaign are making waves, challenging institutions, and changing the world in the process.


we are grateful for each of them.
