Childs was inspired by the beauty and resilience that is the black woman, “I felt inspired to shed light of black women. I think there’s something supernatural about us—our skin, our wit, our compassion, our abilities to bounce back, our spirits, our flare—both famous and ordinary. We need as many opportunities to shine as possible.”
