From Michelle Obama to Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay, Taraji P. Henson and so many more, sisters with superpowers serve as lighthouses and ignite the spark in others who are growing and cultivating their own respective superpowers. These women not only serve as mentors to millions, they are proving, time and time again, that Black girl magic is real and that women of color are sisters with superpowers who can accomplish anything they put their minds to.
African American women all over the world are flexing their superpowers every day in a myriad of ways. Mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, aunts, den mothers and sisters are doing the work, imparting the wisdom, walking in their might and, oh yes, they are definitely showing the world what it means to be powerful. We acknowledge these sisters courage, their beauty, their magnificence. Even though we couldn't identify nor recognize them all, this Women's History Month, we're paying homage to many sisters with superpowers by featuring them here.
Dear sister, we thank you, sisters with superpowers, for continuing to make the human race better while healing and protecting the world.
