Eleven recreates Black icons for Black History Month

For Black History Month, Eleven Inc. reportedly wanted to celebrate African American history from a different perspective – by recreating African American heroes in purely African terms – As African gods.

They succeeded.

Featuring the likenesses of Muhammad Ali, Dr. Maya Angelou, Harriet Tubman and W.E.B Du Bois, the creative team put up large-sized posters near their offices in the financial district, and printed smaller sizes to hand out to folks for free. Take a look at the inspiring images below:

The team also created an African Gods Mask filter on Instagram:

We’ve always looked up to these Black legends and now we can look at them in an entirely different way thanks to Eleven, Inc.
