“A lot of [black women] are brainwashed to not appreciate their natural beauty,” Pierre told Bored Panda. “Especially in 2016.Earlier this year I saw so many black queens who feel comfortable enough and proud to show their African heritage so I decided to start this series to let them know how much I appreciate them and their natural beauty. I just want them to see how we black men see them when they’re rocking their natural hair. We see nothing but #strong #Goddesses & #queens thank you.”
