Often times people of color are misrepresented or underrepresented in schools, media, and in everyday life. Most adolescence are not only exposed to these images but there are a lot of them that don’t have mentors or role models to show them anything different. It is our social responsibility to replace and combat those images and represent our people in a positive light.
