Today is Happy Black Girl Day. It falls on the second Wednesday of each month. Happy Black Girl Day was created to combat the negativity directed toward Black women by the mainstream media, men and even other women. Everything about us is NOT bad, pitiful or evil. We are worthy of celebration, love and reverie. A few of us have committed to being this to ourselves first and inviting others to join in.
I'd love it if other Black women who follow me on Tumblr could just post a little something positive, funny, important, uplifting, or meaningful to your own experience as a Black woman today and tag it "happy black girl day". It can be a picture, a song, a video, a quote or whatever. I also invite anybody who LOVES Black women for whatever reason to do the same.
