Published August 17th

MODELS INC., a Washington, D.C.-based modeling agency, recently posted a picture to their Instagram account of 11 young models signed to the agency and it is certainly one for the books. The girls look absolutely stunning in their Kente cloth, natural hair and, of course, melanin magic!

"When one of the children asked me, 'Does the President like Black people, and is being Black bad?,' we were stunned," creative directors Iran Bang Paylor and Aaron Handy revealed to BET.com. "I immediately replied being Black is bold and divine. So we enforce the teachings to our girls at an early age so that when they're older they will never be able to question their race or culture."
