Founder Beverly Bond has built Black Girls Rock! into an internationally recognized brand dedicated to uplifting Black women and now she’s taking things to the next level yet again.
Just a few months after Black Girls Rock! celebrated its 10th anniversary with the airing of an unforgettable award show back in April, Beverly has revealed plans to release a book centered around highlighting the many facets and accomplishments of Black women from around the world. Speaking exclusively with Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming book, Beverly says it will be a timeless collection of narratives celebrating the inspiring stories of Black women and girls.
“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,” she said in a statement.
The book is to be titled Black Girls Rock!: Celebrating The Power, Beauty and Brilliance Of Black Women and publisher Dawn Davis believes it will serve as a beacon of healing in the Black community. “Beverly is a real visionary who has created not just an award show, not just a brand but an inspirational and aspirational mantra that holistically celebrates Black Girl Magic,” Davis said. “From millennials to baby boomers and beyond, her book is going to help our communities affirm and heal. I think of it as an I Dream a World for our time.”
Black Girls Rock!: Celebrating The Power, Beauty and Brilliance of Black Women is set to release in the fall of 2017.
