How can Black women change the narrative of negative stereotypes of themselves?
Black women can change the narrative of negative stereotypes by stepping up to tell their own stories.

I think we should show the world that we as Black women are human and therefore imperfect, yet at the same time, we are empowered, powerful, resourceful and effective. I believe Black women have taken back the narrative through movements like #BlackGivesRock and #BlackGirlMagic and by giving each other credit where it is due.
