Beverly Bond Talks “Black Girls Rock!” At Build

February 24, 2018

The Black Girls Rock movement was conceived by Beverly Bond as a mission to uplift black women, to show them respect, to strip away the self-hate and marginalization, and to proclaim, “Hey black girl, you rock.” What began as a simple t-shirt idea to showcase inspirational black women throughout history has grown into a phenomenon. In her upcoming book, “Black Girls Rock!: Owning Our Magic. Rocking Our Truth,” Bond celebrates some of the most influential women, including Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Serena Williams and Erykah Badu. Split into nine sections, the book features essays and speeches with each woman telling her personal story or overcoming stereotypes, expectations and discrimination and discovering inner light. Bond has created a resource for black girls and women alike to look and find inspiration in a world that has historically ignored, suppressed and undermined them.
