Contribute to Our Stories
Black Girl Magik welcomes all self-identifying women of the African diaspora on a voyage of self-realization and self-love to contribute to “Our Stories.” Our editorial themes provide a means for us to spend time meditating on a topic, in order to focus on healing. We review submissions on a rolling basis in conjunction with our current or upcoming theme.

What legacies are you crafting on a daily basis?
