A Florida teen wore a Black Lives Matter-themed dress to prom


A 17-year-old Florida high school student gained Internet fame after she wore a Black Lives Matter-themed dress to prom. 

Milan Bolden-Morris, who is a basketball star at Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach, Florida, shared a photo of the dress on Instagram Friday. 

"Yes I'm black. Yes I'm 17. Yes God is using me to convey a message that's bigger than me," Morris wrote in the caption of her photo. 

Her political message soon went viral, even capturing the attention of rapper Snoop Dogg. 

The black, backless gown featured the faces of Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland and others who were killed during police interactions. 

Morris, however, said she couldn't take credit for the idea behind the design. 

"It was all my designer’s idea, Terrence Torrence, to convey this message and he asked if I wanted to help and of course I did,” she told Yahoo Style. "The sole purpose was to convey his message, it was never about me or how I look in it, just the message.”
