Brief Program Description

“Black Girl Magic” is a popular phrase that celebrates the beauty, power, and resiliency of black womanhood. Just like “magic,” our black girls are often misunderstood and feared.

As change agents, it is our responsibility to break barriers and build therapeutic relationships to tap into black girl magic!
