Atlanta, GA — Stunning photos of young Black girls dressed as Disney princesses have gone viral after being shared on social media.
Kahran Bethencourt, who manages CreativeSoul with her husband Regis, said the project is “aimed at redefining and reimagining the traditional princess with their own dash of style, culture, and swag.”
As a child, Bethencourt loved watching and reading fairy tales and fantasy just like many other young Black girls.
The project features princesses as “black urban royalty” and not as “damsels in distress.”
The series of photos were posted on Facebook and it has since received several positive feedback mostly from parents of young Black girls.
