What is Typical?

What is American?

What is a Family?

Who gets to define any of the above? 


  What does your family look like?

What if "Typical", "American", and "Family" could be re-imagined...and be more inclusive?


To be considered to be featured in our new project please send photos of your family to carltonmackey@50shadesofblack.com with a brief statement about why you'd like to be included.
