Black Girls Unscripted is a volunteer-run program that utilizes storytelling as a tool to connect and empower black women and girls. We create platforms that drive affirming conversations – both online and in gathered spaces – around the rich history, diversity and tremendous contributions of black women and girls. We rely on the support of individuals and the grassroots community to  fund our programs. These funds cover training,  workshops/materials, snacks, transportation and seed grants for youth storytellers. Black Girls Unscripted is a registered non profit. All donations

are tax-deductible. Click on the donate button at the top right today! 

Stories have the power to transform, inspire and liberate. Whether it’s a story of triumph over tragedy, small steps  or giant leaps, healing through humor or letting go to love again, we’d love to hear about your journey. Click the 'Share Your Story Button' above to help inspire girls – both young in age and young at heart – to greatness!  



If you're looking for an opportunity to intern, build skills for your resume,

or simply give back to your community, please consider volunteering with Black Girls Unscripted! Volunteers are role models tasked with nurturing

and guiding our future girl bosses. You can host a BGU Listening Session, helping to create safe spaces for girls to discuss important issues and create solutions. Or you can help us tell our story, raise awareness, and build a powerful community by promoting BGU through social media and other

social networks. Email us at for opportunities. 

Black Girls Unscripted is a growing village of women - young, old and becoming - passionate about our journey to healing, empowerment and intentional joy. We believe one of the ways to get there is through collective storytelling.

When you join our tribe, you’ll become part of an AMAZING community of women and girls. Whether we're exploring the stories of brilliant and courageous Black women throughout history, sharing wisdom and our narratives of resilience, or bragging about our grandmother's famous recipes, Black Girls Unscripted is a space where you can be yourself, get inspired, and feel empowered. There's no special requirement to join - just follow us on Facebook or Twitter (@BGUnscripted), use the #BlackGirlUnscripted, and you're in!
