This Week in BlackGirlMagic What It IS!

This Week in BlackGirlMagic What It IS!

This week in BlackGirlMagic…

Personally, I love #BlackGirlMagic because I remember growing up in Minnesota, wanting to be white. By the way, that did not last long. Later in 8th grade as I was planning on picking my high school, I attended this program called Black Achievers and the girls in there were brilliant and beautiful. I remember them saying, “I go to North, in the smart people’s magnet” and I fell in love with going to the school because of their magic, not in their looks but how they valued education, how they were confident and their love for their blackness.

I am so thrilled to watch so many Black women and girls tap into their greatness which I believe is their magic. I love watching the black women entrepreneurs, writers, bloggers, actors, teachers, singers, dancers and more. These women know that BlackGirlMagic is more than their their physical attributes but their looks is just icing on that amazing cake. Go ahead ladies,,, have your cake and eat it too!

This past week we had an article floating around from Elle talking about my problem with #BlackGirlMagic and I saw a lot of disappointed women out there and rightfully so!

So to recap the week, I wanted to bring together some amazing # BlackGirlMagic circulating the web!
