What They Call Us When They See Us | Blackness is Magical


Can we PLEASE stop apologizing for our blackness?


It’s no secret that black women have been called every label under the sun — bitter, angry, too emotional, not emotional enough…

…and the list goes on.

Well, Natty and I are no longer ashamed to say that we have been AND sometimes still are ALL THE THINGS they call us and we’re not apologizing for any of it.

In this week’s episode of Shades of Strong we’re embracing our blackness by taking all the negative and harsh things they call us when they see us and turning them in to the goodness that is BLACK GIRL MAGIC!

Why?  Because there is so much uniqueness in the blackness that is us and contrary to popular belief aka white America,  our blackness is what makes us human.

Our blackness is what makes us great!

Our culture is wrapped up and tied up in the beauty of our blackness — from the crown of heads to the tops of our feet, our blackness is who we are!

So, what are you waiting for? Tune in now to see how we make magic by embracing what they call us when they see us.
