Say It, Sister! - Quotes by Women of African Descent

"Freedom and justice cannot be parceled out in pieces to suit political convenience. I don't believe you can stand for freedom for one group of people and deny it to others."

            -- Coretta Scott King (April 27, 1927 – January 30, 2006)

Welcome to the Brown Girl Collective!

Hey there Brown Girl!!

This is Marcie, the Chief Creative Force behind the Brown Girl Collective, and I would like to welcome you to OUR network! As the tagline says, this is the place where bold, brilliant & beautiful "Brown Girls" connect.

Take some time to peruse the site, join (or start) a group and share your stories of encouragement. While you are always free to voice your honest opinions, please do so in a spirit of love as we want to uplift one another and develop positive solutions to the issues that challenge us as women of color.

So... Grab your favorite beverage, sit back in your chair and enjoy!

With Much Love,
Marcie

See HER (in the mirror)? SHE is worth it!

Before I realized my poem 37 Years was chosen to be shared by Brown Girl Collective, I woke up this morning thinking about how we (women) go through great effort to "preen" in order to attract a man, with the idea that once we find that "true love," we will find happiness.  While the assumption that finding "true love" is correct, we as HUMANS only got it half-right.  The "true love" we seek is not OUTSIDE OF OURSELVES; the Lifetime Happiness we desire must…
