An Affirmation Letter from Us to You
Black Girl Joy is REAL: Really REAL. So real that the Black Girl Joy on display in our "DBW Turns Up 2018!" party in Detroit in January inspired this affirmation letter from us to you!
Featuring some of our favorite moments captured by photographer Cydni Elledge, we write you our wishes for you, ourselves and every Black woman everywhere. Check out more of Cydni's phenomenal work here: Cydni Elledge Photography,
Look out for future, dope Dear Black Women events. In the meantime, and enjoy our words to you below.
May you know safe spaces where you are...
Welcomed to be who you are. Where the best of you is reflected and celebrated.
Where you are encouraged to grow. Where you are seen, heard and affirmed.
May you have a squad that roots you on...
in ways you could never dream of, but in ways you deeply desire!
May you live in your zone.
That space where you feel most empowered, most aligned, most purposeful and most free.
May laughter find you over and over again.
And encourage you to release, restore and renew.
May love find you, hold you and never let you go.
May you know that you are loved. May you cultivate and share that love.
May you receive support and offer support.
Today and everyday.
The Dear Black Women Movement
