The handful of Black women-specific mainstream magazines and websites balance the hundreds that cater to the “general public/American woman” (which can be read as code for white women of a certain size, class and income). *Two snaps* to Madame Noir for standly firmly on this one. Black women cannot create, produce and direct art tha the world wants to see. *Two snaps and clears throat* to Shonda Rhimes for Scandal, Greys Anatomy, How To Get Away With Murder and Year Of Yes for this one. Black women don’t embrace her natural beauty nor love herself from the inside out, start and run a successful business and get along with other powerful black women. *Two snaps for the amazing Black Women who help me debunk this myth, Carmen Veal- Founder of Brown Skin Women. TAP INTO MY NETWORK. BORROW MY BRAIN. USE MY EXPERIENTIAL SKILLS. Carmen Veal, Founder of Brown Skin Women The little girl in me (who grew up struggling with her identity, melanin and ethnic hair) rejoices as I am surrounded by women who are learning to explore and love their hair and their heritage instead of feeling the pressure to assimilate. And this woman who is now raising a little girl LOVES seeing and connecting with women of many shades. WE are working every single day on shining our light (*clears throat* black girl magic) through the foundation our ancestor built for us. We are mothers, wives, business owner, career women who focused on embracing living our best life! And in case you haven’t gathered one simple fact thus far, the gorgeous women in this network’s growth is my very own. When you’re successful, I’m successful…and vice versa. We can all grow through personal and business matters together. This is the love, energy and light Brown Skin Women was built on, and continues to grow. I went from struggling with loving and accepting myself, owning my truth and living a life I wasn’t completely happy with or proud of. To building a location dependent business and incredible support network in less than three years (but with the added strength of eight years full of entrepreneurial setbacks and successes). I plan events for a living that allows me (and others) to shop dope products, meet and grow WITH dope educators and hug and befriend powerful women that I can relate to.
