We invite youto go behind the lens of cultural architect and photographer Eunique Jones Gibson, and her powerful images, to tell the rich story and history of African American icons through the eyes of our nation’s youth.

Join Eunique on her journey to unite over a century of Black History and Culture as we feature images from the Because of Them, We Can™ campaign, including portraits of children inspired by Harriet Tubman, James Brown, Muhammad Ali and the Freedom Riders, through a blog series that will share candid details of the shoots and the people who inspired them. 


PBS and Because of Them, We Can™ are committed to educating and connecting a new generation of minds to heroes who have paved the way. Join the journey and go "Behind the Lens" of the campaign with more resources from PBS.
