What happens when you feel like your own authenticity is judged? Do you continue to live your life or do you stop and wonder if there is something you should be doing differently? This project, The 100 Black Females* Project is about what it means to be a Black woman or girl today.
I created The 100 Black Females* Project to grow a sense of community. Not only for myself to connect with other women of color, but for all to feel that they belong. It is to reach Black women and girls everywhere and letting them know that their stories, thoughts and experiences matter. This project is about empowerment, vulnerability and sharing your true self with the world. It is a place to speak loudly, be heard and be celebrated. The 100 Black Females* Project is not only for Black women and girls, but also for others to listen, learn and empathize. I believe it is important for all people to read these stories so they can directly relate or grow a larger sense of understanding.
* The 100 Black Females* Project stretches beyond the terms ‘female’ and ‘black.’ It is for all who express and identify themselves as a woman, girl, femme, female, trans, queen on any day or all days. The term ‘black’ reaching all of those with roots and history of the African Diaspora.
