Electric: A Celebration of Womanhood champions the empowerment of black women through the rise of icons. In the vein of Rihanna, Beyonce, Naomi Campbell, Megan Thee Stallion and more, Electric honours women of colour who have paved the way in media, eschewing representations of black women as “aggressive” “strong” and “intimidating”; instead showcasing their creativity, personal style, and entrepreneurship.
