Via Yahoo: A tight-knit group of 56 sorority sisters is poised to go viral with a beach photo shoot dubbed “Melanin Illustrated,” honoring black beauty.

Recently the women took a three-day trip to Costa Rica, where they celebrated the Beta Alpha chapter of Delta Sigma Theta a decade after they founded it, in spring 2007, at Florida A&M University.

The sisters are professional women, ages 29 to 35, who continue to be involved in each other’s lives.

“Being in a sisterhood means having a support system and someone always there to count on,” LaToya Owens tells Yahoo Style. Owens is one of the founders of the sorority’s chapter at A&M. She also organized the sisters’ recent trip.

With the hashtags #MelaninIllustrated and #TITEtakescostarica, the women have shared photos of their stunning fun-filled trip to the Central American country on Instagram.

“Our sorority is all about black excellence, ” she says. “We want to serve as an example and [show] appreciation of black women. Our commitment is to scholarship and service, and this was to honor the sisterhood.”
