Little girl, watching her reflection
As she parts her curls into four sections
She says, "I don't look like them, I don't look like her
and I don't want what's on my head"
But baby girl don't be mislead

- Kehlani, Bright


Dear Little Black girl,

You are beautiful. You are something special. That dark skin you're in and that kinky hair on your head are the makings of a queen. Do not let them make you feel any less beautiful because you are different. They do not understand that you are magic. You hail from the land where life began, the land of kings and queens. You are so full of culture and tradition, colour and vibrancy. Be who you are, you are a child of Africa and this is your home. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. That kinky hair is your crown, a clear indication of your royalty. Embrace that beautiful brown skin. You are sugar, spice and all things nice. Embrace your greatness, accept your power. You are a queen and never forget it!
