International Pretty Brown Girl Day

 It’s International Pretty Brown Girl Day

This is a day that should get more attention.  International Pretty Brown Girl Day is the movement of Sheri Crawley who wanted to teach African American girls to appreciate and LOVE their skin color.  Her story is remarkable and speaks to issues in society and the African American community regarding the messages on skin color.  As a mother raising a “Pretty Brown Girl”, I want her to LOVE her skin color and never feel less than because of it.  Being  dark skin I can relate to many of the negative messages and jokes that are out there in mainstream America.  The older I have gotten, I have had to accept my skin color.  So kudos to Sheri Crawley for empowering girls to LOVE the skin their in!
