A Letter from Nikia


Dear Black girl,

Almost a year ago today a group of dynamic individuals came together for our very first flagship Black Girl Beautiful event. When I look back through the images from that day, I am reminded of all the open hearts and brilliant minds that combined to make that event such a success. It truly touches my soul.

In the past few months we have continued to make strides and build this foundation to help women of color. We started in Los Angeles and have spread our love to Atlanta. We're bringing you more intimate events to help our community thrive. People keep asking us to come to more and more cities. Wow! The message is getting out there. What started as a little idea of mine is getting bigger. Yes we are growing and expanding, and that brings such joy to my heart.

In an effort to provide you with a 360 experience, we are really kicking our digital presence into high gear. That means more articles, more discussions, and more uplifting words from Black women just like you. We want to share your stories.  We want you to see your reflection in our words. 

I want you to come to BGB and feel like it's your home, because it is. This is a safe space for you to unwind, relax, talk, and decompress. I want this to also serve as a place for those who love us to come and support us. Instead of assuming that they know what goes on in our minds, let's truly share our unique experiences with them here. 

Black Girl Beautiful is here for you. If there is anything you want to see from us, shoot us an email and let us know.  We are here to uplift you. 

Remember Black girl, you are beautiful.

With love,


Nikia Phoenix
