This Gorgeous Photo Series Crushes Stereotypes About Black Masculinity
"These inaccuracies become ingrained in our society and have real consequences for those that are inaccurately represented."
Meet Myles Loftin. He's a 19-year-old freshman at the Parsons School of Design in New York.
And he's the creator of Hooded, a beautiful series of photographs attempting to undo negative stereotypes of black masculinity.
Loftin shot the photo series after seeing the stark contrast between the Google results for "black boy in hoodie" and "white boy in hoodie."
It inspired Loftin to want to "create a new narrative for ourselves; a more accurate and free one," he told BuzzFeed.
