2 thoughts on “‘Why Are You Offended By the Empowerment of Black Girls?’ – BEVERLY BOND

  1. This organization is the best thing since sliced bread. Empowerment of Black Girls (and Boys) should be a nation-wide initiative. Our African American children need self-confidence and self-esteem enpowerment because they will not receive it in the Public School System (designed to dumb our children down and lower their worth). The following is my favorite Poem for young African American Children:

    I am The Black Child

    I am special, ridicule cannot sway me
    I am strong, obstacles cannot stop me
    I hold my head high, proudly proclaiming my uniqueness
    I hold my peace, continuing forward through adversity
    I am proud of my culture and my heritage
    I am confident that I can achieve my every goal
    I am becoming all that I can be
    I am the black child, I am a child of God

    This is a good concept. I’m a firm believer that when you educate a woman, you educate a family… This will never be so true if the trait is passed on to as many young black girls as humanly possible…
