Black Girls Rock! founder celebrates black women in new book

GIRL POWER: Beverly Bond

BEVERLY BOND, founder of the annual Black Girls Rock! awards show in the US, plans to celebrate other phenomenal black women and girls in a new book that is set to release next year.

After setting up Black Girls Rock! - a mentoring organisation that also hosts an annual award show - BOND has consistently uplifted black women through her work and her new book, titled Black Girls Rock!: Celebrating the Power, Beauty and Brilliance of Black Women, aims to do the same.

“This book will affirm, elevate, and celebrate the unique narratives and rich experiences of black women and girls around the world for generations to come,” Bond told Entertainment Weekly.

The book will include powerful imagery, advice, poetry and stories “to showcase the complexity, dynamism, achievements and diverse cultural traditions of Black women from around the world".
