EJ Brown is tackling stereotypes head on. The 25-year-old created a series of photos called The Mugshot Series to debunk stereotypes Black men face.

In the series, Black men pose in mugshots but have on their graduation cap and gowns and holding placards with their degrees.

Brown said:

We’re not condoning violence, gang activity or criminality, we’re just bringing to light these negative perceptions and how we feel about them. I’m about spreading peace, love and understanding.

Check out some of the photos from the series below and head to Brown’s blog to learn more.
