The Nu Project
Your body is normal. Repeat after me: “My body is normal. My body is wonderful. My body is beautiful.”
Most importantly though, “My body is mine.”
Each as beautiful as the next.
This project is so important. It includes women of all ages and body types and races and it has trans women. This is so important.

The Black body, more so of women, have stood on the opposite side of the narrow Eurocentric standards of beauty. Black hairstyles have defiantly rebelled against and even when straightened added creative magic of Blackness and Boldness.
Black hair, whether relaxed or natural, locked or shaven is beautiful. Black women are beautiful.
