As women of color we need to stop waiting on the world to recognize the beauty and power that we possess. The reality is that it’s probably never going to happen. Once we begin to recognize it for ourselves, what others think of us will no longer matter! We don’t need validation from magazines or the media. From the array of our beautiful brown shades, to our curves and variety of hair textures, the moment we embrace our true beauty is the moment we become free.
“What I think is exciting is that, to a certain extent, there is a revolution happening where black women are owning their own beauty, despite the standard of beauty that in the past has not had space for it.” Tracee Ellis Ross brainyquote.com
