All Black Women’s Team Created to Celebrate Black Girls’ Beauty
LANCASTER, PA (PRWEB) DECEMBER 27, 2016-For Black Girls celebrates the beauty of black girls and women as they relaunch this month. Ruby L. Taylor, M.S.W., Founder of For Black Girls and alumna of Howard University, saw a need to empower young women and consulted with world-renowned artist, Shanequa Gay, and executive, Natalie Meade, M.S.W. to relaunch For Black Girls. The decision was made to form a team of qualified, black women.
With award-winning graphic designer, Jennae Peterson of Hibiscus Creative, Production Executive and Lead Artist, Shanequa Gay, Natalie Meade, President of Development, to Ayanda Chisholm, Trailer Creative, Vice President of Youth Encourager, Bria Fernandez, and Editor, Ashley Ormon, special initiatives will be developed to ensure that black women and girls know how beautiful and powerful they are.
The black body has a history of being treated poorly and inhumanely. For black women, this includes abuse, over-sexualization, and dehumanization. Taylor expresses her desire to teach lessons on validating young girls’ and womens’ beauty, instead of accepting lies created around it. “How they see us is how they treat us,” she says.
