Black Women on Twitter are Celebrating Themselves With #BeingaBlackGirlisLit

Twitter user @Awkward_Duck, Cherell Brown created the #BeingaBlackGirlIsLit hashtag in March of 2015.

Now while it did garner support then as a self-love social media campaign, much like #blackout and #Iwillnotapologizeforbeingdarkskin, the movement garnered even stronger traction after the hashtag was revitalized upon the release of Beyonce’s “Formation” video and Super Bowl halftime performance, which many embraced as a pro-black girl anthem. The hashtag has become a venue for black women to really celebrate their blackness, which sometimes we’re often shamed into not embracing.

And for those that complain:

I propose that we keep #BeingABlackGirlIsLit as our mantra throughout 2016 and then on!

It truly is lit.

I’m so proud to be a black woman that sometimes I just can’t believe I was so blessed to be black. I love my people and our culture and our differences.
