The Black Girls for Liberation Collective (BGFLCollective) was founded in 2021 in response to a community need that was left unmet. Often Black girls are dismissed and thus become invisible, OR they are hypervisible to those who only see them through a deficit lens. We recognize the brilliance of Black girls and the need for them to have sacred spaces to convene, develop, understand self, build relationships with one another, be affirmed, and dream out loud. The Black Girls for Liberation Collective was developed with Black adolescent girls, particularly those navigating the transitions from elementary to middle school in mind.
For there is always light, if only,
we're brave enough to see it,
if only we're brave enough to be it
