Project Live Small Salutes Black Women

Even without genetic modification or elective height reduction surgery, black women have naturally begun to Live Small.

According to an analysis of CDC data by John Komlos (professor of economics at the University of Munich in Germany), "Young black women today are nearly an inch shorter than white women their age and about half an inch shorter than black women born in the late 60s."

In other words, black women today are better equipped for--and will more easily adjust to--the future, when no person of any race or gender stands taller than four feet.

We at Project Live Small salute these brave forerunners of the Live Small movement.
