This past weekend I was honored to be part of an amazing project called Unity In Color. The project, created by artist Jasmine Solano, aims to bring attention to women's rights. The artistic photography series represents the unity and strength in diversity. It was incredibly humbling to be in the presence of such beauty, creativity, talent and intelligence. The project is happening in several major cities across the country and they are all mind blowing! Check out unityincolor.org to learn more about the project and see some of the other photos.
So today, on International Women's Day I honor my ancestors. I honor my friends. I honor the women fighting everyday for our rights, the grandmothers, the mothers, the sisters, the aunts, the homegirls, the healers, the gypsies, the brujas, the soldaderas and every woman who has come before me and every woman who will come after. I honor our history and the strength of who we are, no matter the color of our skin. Every single one of us makes the world go around and every single one of us is important.
With that said, here are some of the photos from the Unity In Color Denver edition, curated by Lily Marsh and shot by photographer Sara Ford. Enjoy!
