Book cover of Dear Black Girls by A'ja Wilson

Dear Black Girls

This one is for all the girls with an apostrophe in their names.
This is for all the girls who are labeled “too loud” and “too emotional.”
This is for all the girls who are constantly asked, “Oh, what did you do with your hair? That’s new.”
This is for my Black girls.
