It’s an image that captures so much black excellence, it’s sure to break the Internet. What you’re looking at is an Instagram photo of Oprah Winfrey holding a drawing of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. created by the late Michael Jackson. It was shared by Diddy with the simple caption, “#lengendary.” Complex has the story:

Yesterday, Diddy posted an image of Oprah holding a portrait of Martin Luther King, Jr. drawn by Michael Jackson with the caption #legendary. We can’t imagine a hashtag more appropriate.

It’s unclear where this gathering of the greats took place, but it probably happened when Oprah visited Michael Jackson’s studio years ago. Michel Jackson’s art collection, mostly drawings and paintings he created, was hidden in a top-secret hangar until 2011 when LA Weekly toured the studio. Photographs from the tour reveal the picture of Oprah holding Jackson’s drawing of MLK.

According to LA Weekly, the collection consists of 150-160 pieces created by Jackson, including architectural drawings, a portrait of George Washington, a sketch of the Wright brothers’ plane, and a depiction of MJ’s pet monkey Bubbles.
