Identities: There's black girl magic at American University

In 2013, CaShawn Thompson told the world that black girls are magic. She started using the hashtag #BlackGirlsAreMagic to celebrate the achievements of strong and beautiful women of color. The words went viral, and since then, we haven’t forgotten to uphold their meaning. Black girls everywhere have used the phrase for Instagram captions and pieces of clothing. They’ve heard the words spoken from the mouths of Michelle Obama and Solange Knowles. Most importantly, they’ve practiced them in their everyday lives. The Huffington Post defines “black girl magic” (BGM) as “a term used to illustrate the universal awesomeness of black women. It’s about celebrating anything we deem particularly dope, inspiring or mind-blowing about ourselves.” Black girl magic is a concept and movement that stands for everything that shows us in a positive light.
