Lance Gross and Lauren London have lent their voices to a virtual exhibit documenting the African American experience.  Watch the videos inside and see Adrienne Bailon, Christina Milian and others posing for the "Be Yo" anti-bullying campaign.  


Lance Gross, Lauren London, Talib Kweli and Jordin Sparks are among the YBF celebs who've joined an interactive campaign with Wells Fargo bank displaying "The Kinsey Collection: Shared Treasures of Bernard and Shirley Kinsey - Where Art and History Intersect."

In several online videos, the celebs serve as virtual curators in a four-part short film series, “Untold Stories: Our Inspired History,” that takes viewers through specific points in history represented by artifacts in The Kinsey Collection.

Lisa Frison, The Kinsey Collection's African American segment manager, spoke about the campaign saying,

“Wells Fargo’s primary goal in collaborating with the Kinsey family to bring this collection to audiences across the country was to create an opportunity for others to engage in dialogue around the rich history of African Americans.

The Untold Stories campaign is an exciting extension of this partnership, and an innovative way to continue the discussion about the significant contributions of African Americans.”

The campaign is a great opportunity learn something new or revisit some great stories about the African American experience.
