Fashion site StyleLikeU is known for delivering a raw and real look at what true style really means. Their well-known "What's Underneath" project implores women to open up by stripping down — ultimately revealing the core of who they are.

In celebration of Black History month, StyleLikeU has teamed up with influential Black women hailing from New Orleans for a docu-series that delves deeper into what really shapes us and how we choose to express ourselves. The 5 subjects open up about about their lives and disrobe to show that style isn't what we wear but who we are.

The series continues with 78-year-old New Orleans based Roselyn Lionhart. The outspoken, colorful musician opens up about everything from her days in the Air Force, to her interracial marriage during a time when it was still illegal in 25 states. She also talks about facing racism throughout her life, what makes her feel vulnerable and what makes her strong.
