We were inspired to make this project after realizing how many stereotypes of black people are all around us in our everyday media. We want to highlight more black creatives who are showing black people in a more realistic way.
What it does
The website highlights a few black creatives as well have a question at the end in which the viewer can use to find a more personalized recommendation.
How we built it
We used HTML, CSS, and jquery.
Challenges we ran into
A big challenge we faced during the project was our code editor having to be opened in two tabs and then check the first tab to see our loaded code correctly.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are super proud of our ability to get this done in such a short period of time! We never thought we would be able to get so much done in a few days!
What we learned
We learned a lot about html tags and css alignment. We also learned about events in jQuery.
What's next for The Black Lens
We don't really know yet, but we hope that this website will be a great start to our mission of seeing more realistic representation in our media.
