Black Girl Magic

Black Girl Magic  /ˈblak ˈgər(-ə)l ˈma-jik/  slang. – celebrating the beauty, power and resilience of Black women. Congratulate Black women on their accomplishments. The hashtag #BlackGirlMagic is a movement that was popularized by CaShawn Thompson in 2013.

“You’re important in your own right. People need to value you because of who you are, because of your story. Because of your challenges. That’s what makes you unique. You know? You wanna be different, you wanna be special. The fact that you’ve been able to overcome challenges – and this is what I’ve always thought – that made me smarter. That made me better because I could overcome things that a lot of people who were in the same position never had to overcome.”

– Michelle Obama.

Instead of highlighting the Black experience through an interview, today’s Pick Progress post celebrates the many dynamic and brilliant faces that epitomize #BlackGirlMagic.
