One teacher’s fierce and fabulous painting of an African-American woman as a door decorator for Black History Month has gone viral.

Baltimore, Maryland-based instructor, Kimberly Tatuem, has wowed thousands of individuals online with her creativity.

Outside her door at the N.A.C.A. Freedom and Democracy Academy II, a public charter school, you can see the artistically designed woman with piercing eyes, a curly afro made from construction paper, a choker customized from Kente cloth, and a dress made from the faces of iconic black historic figures like Dr. Maya Angelou, Thurgood Marshall, Malcom X, and more.

Impressed by her art, teachers across the nation are trying their best to replicate the design.
