BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc. is 501(c)3 non-profit youth empowerment and mentoring organization established to promote the arts for young women of color, as well as to encourage dialogue and analysis of the ways women of color are portrayed in the media.
Since 2006, BLACK GIRLS ROCK! has been dedicated to the healthy development of young women and girls. BLACK GIRLS ROCK! seeks to build the self-esteem and self-worth of young women of color by changing their outlook on life, broadening their horizons, and helping them to empower themselves. For the past four years, we have enjoyed the opportunity to enrich the lives of girls aged 12 to 17 years old through mentorship, arts education, cultural exploration and public service.
I absolutely love causes like this, I think its completely necessary in our society today.
It's crucial that we empower and inspire women of all ages but definitely the youth.
With the way that black women are being portrayed today in the media, We should take it upon ourselves to step in and be a positive example. All of these participating women are so beautiful, strong, creative & talented ..I love it!
