This right here is #BlackGirlMagic meets #BlackExcellence.

From the looks of this epic photoshoot, it’s clear that Duke University’s Class of 2018 is boasting some incredibly beautiful and intelligent Black women.

“I’m speechless ,take a moment to look at my sister and her class of graduating Educated Strong Amazing Black Women from Duke University. I hope many young black queens see these women as an inspiration , and an encouragement to never let anybody tell you that you can’t do or become something amazing in life,” foreign.mah wrote in her Instagram post.

Just take a look at all of this melanin!

Slaying for days!

The pic of these 46 sistas was shot by photographer Joseph W. Kim, a fellow Duke student who explained on his website that he has a passion for “telling the stories of people whose stories aren’t often heard.”

We see you queens!

Hopefully other young women will look to them and be inspired as well!
