Seeing these beautiful 14 women is giving me so much life for Black History Month. Many of us grew up loving and watching Disney. I mean who didn’t want to be a Disney princess? A lot like most adults who were born in the 80’s and early 90’s, Audrey Lee Young is fascinated with Disney. She grew up on the classic animated films, the memorable characters, and the inspiring story lines. But it wasn’t until years later that her fondness would blossom into an obsession, one that inspired her to found a DisneyBound community and visit the theme parks regularly.  Her obsession for Disney and creativity has turned into a wonderful thing. This group of women are determined to change the way we see Disney princesses. Representation matters!!

“I said, ‘well if there aren’t any more black Disney girls, let’s make the Disney girls black” Audrey said on her social media. I came across this beautiful image on Instagram. I saw 14 women all dressed in beautiful African print. I did not notice at first that they were emulating Disney princesses. As a black blogger, I am always looking for things to highlight on my blog that promotes black excellence. According to POPSUGAR, Audrey explained that she has been trying to get this idea started for some years now.  “It was important to see this through because when I came up with the idea, it was literally because our group had run out of black women Disney characters to portray,” she explained. “After only TWO projects we had depleted the extent of black female Disney characters”.

Although it took years for the project to get off the ground, Audrey never gave up on her vision. On Feb. 8, the group of women with the help of  photographer Madeline Barr made their debut, delighting cast members and guests at Disneyland. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Chip, and Dale all stopped for a little time with the princesses. So many people asked to take their picture. “At one point we finally had to leave Main Street because there were a lot of people staring and pointing as photos were being taken,” Audrey said. “All day guests were commenting on how beautiful and majestic we looked.”

 “For all the little girls out there who still don’t see the representation they deserve or who are still told that their black/brown skin and kinky hair are undesirable, you are beautiful princesses. The standard of beauty is YOU! You can be a mermaid, you can be a boss lady, you can be a warrior, you can be an adventurer,” Audrey said. “Dream big and dream bold.”  These words are just beautiful. “ALEXA: Play ‘Brown Skin Girl‘ by Beyonce”. Take a look at all the pictures below that highlight these beautiful brown skin PRINTcesses.
