This week, we're talking with photographer Natalie Jackson O'Neal, about her exhibit, "Crowns of Empowerment." The exhibit is inspired by her interest in fashion magazines of the 1940s to 1960s. Noticing that those magazines generally excluded black women. O'Neal set about creating a series of her own photographs, featuring models dressed in vintage clothes juxtaposed with allusions to the history of the civil rights struggle. She talks about the process of creating the exhibit, and about where and how she found her models.
