    Teen's Stunning African-Print Dress Goes Viral After Teacher Told Her It Would Be Inappropriate



    ... In an Instagram post, Zanders wrote that she created her dress to show that “African style is beautiful,” that she is “comfortable with my Melanin and roots” (loving her capitalization of the word melanin), and that “there’s nothing like Black girl Magic.” There’s not enough yasssses or Amens in the world to applaud this young, creative woman’s zeal ...

    Wow! Beautiful! What an awesome trend!

    I have been telling my family that is what I have been wanting for a few years now!

    Do you know where these couples Proms were held and is this a trend in several areas already or is it still in one community. This is so awesome.
