Lola is barely old enough to write the letters N-A-A-C-P yet bears a striking resemblance to its founder and anti-lynching activist Ida B. Wells.
It’s all part of an educational, and empowering project her mother helped bring to life.
With the aid of props from around their home in Kent - wigs, a bonnet, her mother’s cellphone, artsy eye and photo apps - Lola has transformed into some of the most admired and notable black women in history.
Cristi, Lola’s mother, says Lola was enthralled by a video on Martin Luther King, Jr. shown in school last month. Cristi turned that into an opportunity to teach her child more about civil rights.
Since Lola loves dressing up, her mother says she decided it would be fun to educate her daughter about black history by having her actually become the women she was learning about.
