56 sorority sisters from Florida A&M University honored black beauty with a now-viral photo shoot on Costa Rican beaches.

To celebrate their 10th anniversary of joining the sorority, Delta Sigma Theta alums donned themselves in bathing suits that matched their skin tones and chartered a catamaran to private beaches. There, they posed in the sea and sand for their shoot, which they dubbed “Melanin Illustrated.”

“Black women are often overlooked in beauty,” LaToya Owens, a member of the sorority’s Beta Alpha chapter at A&M, tells Yahoo Style. “This was our way to shine a light on all types of black beauty.”

She adds, “Our sorority is all about black excellence . . . We want to serve as an example and [show] appreciation of black women.”

Beautiful ladies!
