Your Stories Are Needed

Since its debut in July 2009, Brown Girl Collective’s Facebook, Instagram & Twitter audiences have grown to reach hundreds of thousands of women (and a few good men) from across the world. However, with all of the people that have enjoyed the content shared on social media, there are still countless others who have never had the opportunity to learn about the BOLD, Brilliant and Beautiful women and girls that are being celebrated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365/366 days a year.

With that in mind, Brown Girl Collective is looking to expand upon its current format of sharing historical and current information about women from the African diaspora, to include more stories and profiles about the women and girls that are a part of our everyday lives, on our new and improved website. Why? Because ALL of our stories matter and have the potential to be an inspiration to someone else.

Listed below are the features that will be included in the new and improved Brown Girl Collective website. (Requirements are listed in more detail at the bottom of the page.)
