Greetings Pretty Brown Girls! 
Dear Pretty Brown Girls and Supporters,
In 2010, we decided to relocate back to my hometown of Detroit with our two daughters, as my Mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. We left our fast paced lifestyle behind and started over with one question, how could we use our gifts, talents and skills to impact others? Inspired by my mom who spent her life changing the lives of others, I was left with the wondering of how I would be remembered, who am I truly helping, whose life would be different because our paths crossed and how I would leave a legacy of love for my daughters to follow.
Six years later, with having touched thousands of girls with the PBG Movement, we challenge Pretty Brown Girls to ask themselves that same question. To all of the Pretty Brown Girls graduating and moving on to the next phases in their lives, we congratulate you for your accomplishments and achievements! You are however, sure to encounter some well-meaning but misguided people will try to convince you to not follow your big dreams. Do not let these people distract you, as we are counting on you walking into your greatness. You are our future Leaders, Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Entrepreneurs and even Presidents. Never let the "how" you are going to do something stop you from the "why" you will do it. Remember, that if God gives you a vision, he will provide you with the provision.
We stand with you as you walk into your purpose as you now have an obligation to yourself, your community and to e veryone in your village who invests, supports, and believes in you to 
go forth with confidence and hope.  
Abundant Blessings and Love,
Founder of The Pretty Brown Girl Movement

Join The Pretty Brown Girl Movement

New National Membership Coming Soon...
Sign Up TODAY!

Imagine a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. There is a serious 
under-representation  of positive messages and images regarding girls and women of color in mainstream media and in our global society at-large. 

We are in the process of expanding our current Club model so that more people can join the  Pretty Brown Girl Movement with a National Membership to support  the Pretty Brown Girl Foundation, a non-profit tax exempt 501c3. This will provide an opportunity to bridge the gap for girls both nationally and internationally. Your membership will allow us to continue the momentum and change our communities, one girl at a time. 

If you are interested in joining or if you would like to receive updates, please complete the National Member Interest Form

Congratulations to Deshauna Barber,  Miss District of Columbia, a 26-year-old Army officer and IT analyst, who wins the Miss USA pageant! She graduated from Virginia State University in 2011 and joined the military at age 17. She stated, "We are just as tough as men. As a commander of my unit, I'm powerful, I am dedicated and it is important that we recognize that gender does not limit us in the United States."

9-Year-Old, Khloe Thompson, creates and distributes "Kare Bags", which are  hand-sewn bags filled with various toiletries for homeless women. She decided to launch her own charity, Khloe Kares, which focuses on community service and educating other kids about things going on in the world

Congratulations Pretty Brown Girls! This is amazing!
