Representation is more than just a buzzword. It is a significant part of how people feel included and seen in spaces that don’t historically value their existence. One of the most famous examples is the film, “Black Panther.” For the first time, Black children worldwide could imagine a universe where all the superheroes and influential people looked just like them. The film’s representation level was so impactful that people from all walks of life signed each other with the “Wakanda Forever” gesture for years after the movie’s initial release. Examples like the one above are critical to cultural storytelling and overall inclusivity. Eunique Jones Gibson and the good people down at the Happy Hues Co. would seem to agree.
