Sister Toldja dubbed yesterday "Happy Black Girls Day." I cried.
So what the hell do we do?
1. Stop thinking you aren't what a little girl needs.
2. Your lived experience is her Mapquest.
3. Even if you aren't related, you are connected.
4. The smallest token of affection can push a little girl's dreams to infinite possibilities.
Even though yesterday was "Happy Black Girls Day" it should go year 'round. I sent the little princesses in my life a note (it can be a text, email, handwritten, whatever) and it said "Precious One, You are loved. You are capable. You are empowered. You have a destiny. You are priceless. And I got your back no matter what."
So, to my little black princesses Ayana, Charity, Janiah, and Jaci Lynn I got your back. Happy Black Princess Day.
