Black Girls Blogging is more than a blog. It’s a community for Black women to come together to connect, share, and learn about blogging. Here you’ll learn blog tips, meet black women bloggers and promote your content.
If media consumption were a sport, black folks would be gold medalists dozens of times over. Though we consume more images than practically any other ethnic group, we remain a fraction of a fraction of media producers. The effect of the intake/output disparity impacts the way we see ourselves and the world around us—more often than not in damaging ways. Women, particularly Women of Color, suffer inordinately from having our self-concept molded by those who care not for our full personhood or happiness.
But times are changing.
Digital media provides Black women opportunities to reclaim our image, and blogging is a way for black women tell our own stories and explore our true passions.
At Black Girls Blogging, the mission is to empower Women of Color to find and share their voices through blogging.
I’m Kimberly N. Foster the founder of Black Girls Blogging. I’m a media entrepreneur who’s been blogging since 2006.
I’m endlessly curious, and more than anything I adore black women. That’s why I created For Harriet nearly 2 years ago.
I’m passionate about empowering women through all forms of media.
