PRETTY LIKE LUPITA WHEN THE CAMERAS CLOSE IN – DRIP BROKE THE LEVEE WHEN MY KELLYS ROLLL IN🗣 Momma told me to take photos today because I’m stepping into myself, co-hosted a companywide #Juneteenth conversation and launched in-product offerings available across the US🎉 This pandemic will not dim our light. WE ARE SHINING. Black women across the company bossed up in innumerable ways😭
Checkout the stories below:
Juneteenth has historically been a day in American history that’s not celebrated enough, but major brands and companies are hoping to change that this year.
In light of recent tragic events, Black people and POC’s demands for social justice and real change in this country have sparked the start of a new revolution encouraging the world to take notes and listen.
Storytelling during this time has taken on a new meaning for Black voices and to amplify those voices, Instagram is continuing their #ShareBlackStories initiative by partnering with three Black artists — Andrea Pippins, Marco Cheatham, and Mina Elise — to design a series of new stickers in celebration of Juneteenth.
