It’s a “Girls Trip” for the books !
Recently, 28 sorority sisters from Florida A&M University celebrated black beauty with a now-viral photo shoot on Costa Rican beaches.
To celebrate their 10th anniversary of joining the sorority, Delta Sigma Theta alums donned bathing suits that matched their skin tones and chartered a catamaran to private beaches. There, they posed in the sea and sand for their shoot, which they dubbed “Melanin Illustrated.”
“Black women are often overlooked in beauty,” LaToya Owens, a member of the sorority’s Beta Alpha chapter at A&M, tells Yahoo Style. “This was our way to shine a light on all types of black beauty.” She adds, “Our sorority is all about black excellence . . . We want to serve as an example and [show] appreciation of black women.”
