Mona Lisa should feel honored.

There are some things you don’t know you need until you get them.
There are many reasons to love The Carters’ "Apes**t" video, with one of them being able to see Black folks look like works of art in front of actual artwork.
The couple brought Paris’ Louvre Museum to the culture.
What could get better than that? Seeing a bunch of everyday Black women standing in front of a famed painting during Black History Month, and journalist Darian Symoné Harvin did just that.

Her followers delivered and blessed the internet with their shots. In all honesty, Mona Lisa should feel honored.

Mama is the one who should be framed.
That's my momma living her best life when I took her to Paris last year. She immigrated from Haiti, raised 6 kids and sent us all to college. A BOSS. pic.twitter.com/9Gv2kK9QPo— Johanne Sterling (@elektricclady) February 14, 2019

We believe the following tweet summed it up quite nicely:
