Adorable 5-year-old women for Black History Month

Because Black History Month is 28 days long (not just on Feb. 1, when white people notice everyone tweetstorms about it), one woman has been posting a photo every day to teach her daughter—and to remind the rest of us—of the black sheroes we should be grateful for.

To make the learning more adorable, Cristi Smith-Jones has been dressing and posing her 5-year-old daughter Lola as all the greats.

Day 13. Black History Month photo project.  

1:21 PM - 13 Feb 2017

Smith-Jones told Mashable that Lola has loved the experience of being transformed "into women who have opened doors and created opportunities for girls just like her." Smith-Jones said that Josephine Baker made Lola "feel confident," but Rosa Parks was her favorite because "she was very brave."

"She'll be able to look back at them years from now, and hopefully have fond memories, and still feel empowered," Smith-Jones said. "Because I want her to learn more about black history than just those we feature, we talk about other significant figures, watch movies and videos online, things of that nature."

In case you need another dose of #blackgirlmagic, photographer Marc Bushelle created a similar series called "The Heroines Project" in 2015.
