Brown Girl Collective celebrates BOLD, Brilliant and Beautiful women and girls of African descent by paying homage to our past and sharing our present, while preparing for our future. 

Host Marcie L. Thomas chats with photographers and vision builders Eunique Jones Gibson and Katina Parker on the importance of preserving our history and changing our future through images.

Eunique Jones Gibson is the visionary artist behind the "Because of Them, We Can" social media campaign, products and book (http://www.becauseofthemwecan.com), as well as the I AM Trayvon Martin photo campaign. What initially began as a mother's desire to build the self-esteem of our children by sharing positive and historical images of African Americans has now become a movement that inspires men, women, boys and girls of all ages.
