Pahokee High School student Milan Morris’ dress is covered in images of African Americans killed recently, including Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Sandra Bland.
Morris, who also happens to be a basketball player of the year in her area, had her dress designed by Terrence Torrence, a Palm Beach County designer who said he had the design idea for over a year.
“It really conveyed such a strong message,” Morris told the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. “For me to be in that moment, to be bold and courageous to do that, it was a blessing.”
Morris’ photos have gone viral and are being shared everywhere, check out the pics:
Way to go young lady! Those lives were gone too soon, and we cannot ever forget!
