Amandla Sternberg is a care free unapologetic black girl. I love it! She schooled confused souls about cultural appropriation in her piece entitled "Don't cash crop my cornrows." Black girls are taught at a young age to hate the features they're born with, but celebrate other ethnicities when its stolen. The 17 year old activist and actress mentioned in a interview with visionary Solange "I think that when you're a black girl and you grow up, you internalize all these messages. Everywhere you look they tell you that you shouldn't accept your hair, or natural features, or that you shouldn't have a voice, or that you aren't smart. In terms of my evolution I think those internalized messages built up in my mind until I was given the tools to recognize the situation. And understand that no, there's nothing wrong with me, these are just messages that we're fed." It's beautiful to see black women and girls knowing and loving themselves.
We have to empower one another to be magical queens despite how society wants us to be.
