when i first came up with the idea for ‘year of the real black girl’ with my partner in poppin’ deshaun wright, i wasn’t sure exactly where i wanted the project to go. i just knew that it had to happen. we released the series and even though it didn’t garner zillions of viewers, those that watched loved it. loved it so much that they wanted to participate. the web series was over, so the best way to make this happen was to host meetups.
we had our first meet up in february and it was preeeeetty amazing! this weekend, we’ll be reconvening in bed-stuy for laughs, bonding, and some good girl talk. come through and bring your fave girls with you!
