Initially, I decided to start this blog as an extension of my Instagram page: @black.artists.matter because I believe the world needs more Black artists, more Black writers, more Black singers, more Black poets, more Black everything. We as, Black people are such magical beings and the world doesn’t deserve us or our talents. But, I also wanted this blog to be an extension of me and my work and my writing. Since the pandemic hit I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on where I want this blog to go, what I want it to do. Throughout my time at home, my vision for It’s A Black Girl’s World has grown into something bigger.
I’m using this blog as an opportunity to create a platform for Black women, Black girls, Black people everywhere because we need more spaces in the world dedicated to us created by us. There are so many issues and topics within the Black community that go unnoticed every day, issues that aren’t covered by mass media, things that should be talked about. This is a safe space I created to voice my opinions on the things that matter to me. Whether I’m talking about the latest movie or the last book I read or what it’s like to attend a PWI, this blog is personal and 100% me. Being a Black girl is all I know how to be.
There’s not a soul alive that can tell me what to write or how to write it because it’s my story and I’m the only one that can tell it.
With all that said, thank you for stepping into A Black Girl’s World. Feel free to leave a comment, suggest topics for us to discuss, and more. Be on the lookout for my first official post!
