Tamara Winfrey Harris with Dr. Carolyn Strong
Join us for a special virtual event with Tamara Winfrey Harris, writer and editor of the important new book Dear Black Girl: Letters From Your Sisters on Stepping Into Your Power. She will appear in conversation with Dr. Carolyn Strong, who lovingly wrote one of the letters within. They will read some selections from the book, discuss the complicated Blacke-femme relationship, and answer questions.

About Dear Black Girl:

More than a year ago, author Tamara Winfrey Harris asked a few Black women on social media to write 12 honest, open, and inspiring letters of support to young Black girls in a workshop aged thirteen to twenty-one to. She asked them to write letters that were loving, truthful, vulnerable, feminist, anti-racist, body positive, LGBTQ+ positive, antirespectability politics, and proBlack girl. Instead of twelve letters, she received more than fifty from all over the world. And she continues to receive them. On scented paper. Through the internet. Shoved into her hands in Starbucks. Neatly printed on notebook paper. Typed. Scrawled in elegant swirls. In hand-decorated envelopes.

In Dear Black Girl, Winfrey-Harris introduces and organizes a selection of these letters, modeling how black women can nurture future generations. Each chapter ends with a prompt encouraging girls to write a letter to themselves, teaching the art of self-love and self-nurturing.
