In this love letter from mothers to brown daughters everywhere, little girls are reminded to love the skin they’re in. Girls come in all different colors, shapes, and sizes. Some have long hair, some have short, and others have straight hair or curly. Still, despite the differences, there is something all little brown girls have in common…
They have the power to be anything! There are those who will say “you can’t,” but that’s just not true. Little brown girls are tough and strong and bright. Each girl was put here for a reason with a God-given purpose and plan. The way girls look and the way they act is no accident; God gave everyone a certain appearance, as well as certain skills.
The beauty of little brown girls is passed down from their mothers, their grandmothers, and beyond.
It’s true, things sometimes get tough, but girls know to keep going and fight tough with toughness. Little girls shouldn’t be afraid to be true to the gifts their Father has given them. Be empowered and proud to celebrate the strength of brown girls.
