I have a lot of pictures I’ve collected over the years. I have collected hundreds of beautiful images of black women over a period of time. Many of them I have never used in a post. So I thought I would post some of the beauties from the 70’s,80’s,90’s…up into the present. You may recognize some of the faces. Others you may not. Some of them are beauty contest winners,famous actresses,aspiring models and singers. This post is open for anyone to put up pictures of black women they think are beautiful or exceptional in some way. This post is a celebration of all the beautiful women in the African diaspora. Or as I call it Melanin Heaven! Enjoy!
