Black Girl Magic (BGM) celebrates the resilience, acumen, and ability of Black women. Hearing the term conjures memories of Black women in our personal circles, and those at a distance who have successfully navigated racial structures that denigrate and devalue Black women. Black Girl Magic brings a smile to the faces of many Black women and girls as we reflect on our own personal magic. In many ways, BGM represents resilience and all possibilities for Black women.
