The New Ancestors UK is a legacy project, to teach children black history through creativity. Jade Sullivan is a stylist, writer, and curator with an insatiable passion for vintage fashion and style.
With a love for old photography and videos of our amazing ancestors, she has used iconic historical imagery as creative direction to inspire her latest shoot: ‘Black British Power – The Freedom Equity Party’.
This first shoot for our new photography and video project will follow our little people – the ancestors of our future. Our children teach us every day, they are old clever souls, with so much wisdom and knowledge in their DNA. It will capture and track our team of children, giving birth to a creative community. Set to document how our children digest their black world history, capture their growth, and how their ideas of the world develop. We will observe what kind of people they become inside their beautiful, conscious, and nurturing family hubs.
This is a creative collective team project. Jade pulled together a team of like-minded individuals, merging their creative superhero talents. An added bonus is that by the help of their ancestors, the majority of the team have been blessed and given birth to beautiful children, granting us a captive pool of talent to shoot.
