    Clear your calendars–it's going down! Black Girl Magik kicks off an event on Jan. 1st and you're invited to take part in the festivities. The Bishop is our meeting spot for a day of fun and excitement. Come one and hang loose. You don't want to miss this!

    The workshop, Girl Boss panel, and benefit concert event will kick off at 5pm and wrap-up at 11pm. First up, we will have the pleasure of participating in verbal healing with some of the most empowering and inspirational women of color. Up next, we'll hear from some Girl Bosses and learn about how they made the most out of opportunity.

    But hold up, that's not all. We have some very dope women rocking the crowd for the benefit concert. Who knows, maybe it's your favorite girl rapper? Spend the day creating bonds with new sisters and taking in knowledge and enlightenment whether its verbally, mentally, or musically.

    Disconnecting to Reconnect

    The Black Girl Magik collective supports each member in her healing journeys through our annual self-care break. During this time we disconnect from social media to the capacity our programming allows, the internet and other distractions to further reconnect with ourselves. Additionally, we take this time to re-engage with the mission of the collective and to return the root of what it means to organize and build collectively. We are now considering what this self-care break can look like when we invite transparency into our restoration process, and engage our community through physical programming.

    The main goal of our residency with Powrplnt is to provide resources for women of color to engage in restoration and healing and to define self-care on their terms. We aim to: 1) conjure the capacity to center the resilience of women of color; 2) provide resources for women of color to engage in restoration and healing with us, and to define self-care on their terms; 3) host programming, open studios and discussions for and with the community.

    Healing is a journey and we are honoring this journey as a collective by disconnecting from social media, the internet and other distractions to further reconnect with ourselves. We invite you to join us and can’t wait to share how you can meet us IRL.

    Reclaiming Pleasure

    "Reclaiming Pleasure" is the assertion of sexual power, alongside a period of recovery. It is a Black woman finding strength in her sensuality and grounding autonomy in the realms of pleasure and desire. It is the rejection of standards set on our ancestors and the distinction between agency and objectification.

    Returning Home

    “Returning Home” is an exploration back to lands, rituals and traditions that we have always known. It is voyaging and feeling at home as soon as you step foot on the ground. It is hearing music and your soul perceiving the frequencies. It is seeing a familiar face and knowing that somehow you have met before. “Returning Home” is a return to self.
