so black women and girls can authentically be

I Be Black Girl (IBBG) is the collective for Black women & girls Girls to Grow, Give, Connect & Take Action

We believe Black women, femme and girls are integral to thriving vibrant communities, yet experiences of racism, sexism, adultification, and transphobia that minimize our ability to live authentically and access our full potential. We are routinely invisible in research, advocacy, and policy.

Our experiences are lost at the intersection of race and gender, overshadowed by the experiences of our counterparts. 

As a result, we are inhibited by structural barriers and systemic oppression. Disparate rates show we are over disciplined and criminalized in school, experience higher rates of partner violence, feel the weight of the unequal pay gap and suffer workplace discrimination and high incarceration rates. This landscape is where I Be Black Girl was created.
