It's a fact...


No one tells our stories better than we do. That's why we created an intergenerational platform

to share, collect, and celebrate the narratives of black women and girls that often go unheard, forgotten

 or overlooked in mainstream media, popular culture and within our communities. 

We know that the stories we consume about our beauty, diversity, history and contributions are

most authentic and best told through our lens. So we're reclaiming our stories here - in a safe and embracing space created especially for Black women and girls - and we invite you to join us!

"I have a daughter, so anything that's connected

to uplifting women and girls, I want to support it."


                         - Common  


We had the pleasure of catching up with the rapper, actor, author, philanthropist, and Oscar Winner at 

the Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD where we discussed his career, family and future projects. We wanted to know his most memorable career moments, his thoughts on how hip-hop impacts women and girls, and how he juggles being a rapper with fatherhood. Click on video to listen!
