2015 Pretty Brown Girl Day Celebration to Launch in Chicago on February 28th, 2015by Greater Diversity News February 23, 2015
Detroit, MI – International Pretty Brown Girl Day was established by the Pretty Brown Girl Foundation. This is a special day to empower, inspire and encourage girls of color to love the skin they’re in.
The mission statement of the organization is to encourage girls to celebrate the beautiful shades of brown all over the world; while inspiring positive self-esteem and confidence. The call to action is for organizations, schools, churches and community leaders to start a Pretty Brown Girl Club and launch them with celebrations on International Pretty Brown Girl Day.
“It is significant that International Pretty Brown Girl Day is during Black History Month and will be hosted in Chicago this year where our story began,” says Sheri Crawley, Founder of Pretty Brown Girl. Girls of color will have a social platform to address, discuss and celebrate the very important topic of loving the skin they’re in. The theme this year is to “Dream Big” with confidence, courage and character.
The Pretty Brown Girl Club, launched in 2012, is the first ever organization for girls of color to have a social platform to address, discuss and celebrate the topic of loving the skin they’re in. Pretty Brown Girl also offers a K-12 After-School Program Curriculum with interactive engagement and learning activities. Young ladies participating in the Pretty Brown Girl programs will be inspired to Dream Big and pledge to walk in their purpose.
The 2015 International Pretty Brown Girl Day Celebration will take place on Saturday, February 28, 2015 from 2 p.m.- 5 p.m. at the South Shore Cultural Center located in Chicago, Illinois. Registration is free, but seating is limited. More information can be found on their website www.prettybrowngirl.com or their Facebook page, Pretty Brown Girl.
