on dec 31, 2013, i texted a friend saying that 2014 would be the year of the real black girl.
after enduring a year filled with nothing but doom+gloom stories about the black female experience online and in print, i set out to bring my nye declaration to life. the series “year of the real black girl” seeks to highlight the diversity amongst black women, breakdown the “ideal black woman” archetype and celebrate black womanhood in all of its manifestations in a relatable, honest and sisterly way.
