Through My Lens, A Black Girl's Magic
Black Girl Magic or A Black Girl’s Magic, I believe I prefer the latter version.
I first encountered this phrase a few years ago. Language tossed about by a younger generation that occasionally stuck in my head. The new colloquial speak.
I came across it again in an excerpt from a book written in 1999 by Author, Joan Morgan in which she writes “urging me to recapture the feminine and discover the fierceness of a Black Girl’s Magic…”
Suffice it to say, I love this language. I think of my Mother and then, my Wife - both the epitome of A Black Girl’s Magic. I think of my Daughter, infused with their strength. I think of Harriet and Angela and Ella and Michelle… and if you need last names here, perhaps you should be reading something else.
