The launch party for Inspiration: Profiles of Black Women Changing Our World by Crystal McCrary and with photographs by Lauri Lyons was this on Monday night at the ICP in NYC. I’ve been lucky enough to be party of this project from almost the beginning so it was with great joy that I attended the celebration. It was a long process to get this book to print – wrangling essays and photos shoots for 30 very busy women was quite the challenge, but to see the finished finally on book shelves makes it all worth it. At the beginning of this project I was familiar with many of the women on the list and enjoyed reading more about their childhood’s and their path to success—but it was reading and learning the stories of some of the less celebrity and known women that was truly fascinating to me.
