Breaking stereotypes was the mission for the #100blackmeninsuits and #100blackwomeninsuits picture taken today in front of the Rayburn Student Center.

The picture event was coordinated by the Texas A&M University-Commerce chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

“By doing this, we are bringing awareness to the black community, showing how great black people are,” Uche Oleru, a participant in the picture gathering said. “Not just black men but black women as well. Dressing up in suits, I think that’s showing that we’re trying to fight a stereotype that African-American people aren’t as educated or don’t go to college. So, I feel like by doing this we are promoting black empowerment and awareness to educate black people.”
