Dear Black Girl…Calling All Brown Girls Bound to WIN!

Dear Black Girl: Timeless Gems for Brown Girls Bound to Win is a series of colloquialisms, affirmations and statements utilized by author Tabitha D. James to center excellence in service and abundant thinking. This resource was developed with many amazing people in mind — the thousands of black girls and women she has encountered along her educational, professional, and personal journey. Those who have poured into her, those she has poured into and most importantly those who often struggle to see the true value in being who you are while striving to reach goals and WIN!


Message from the Author:

Along this life journey I have encountered some beautiful, unique, talented, intelligent and downright amazing queens. Some who grew up rural, some inner-city, some suburban and some international — girls and women from varying socioeconomic backgrounds with differing views and foundational structures. I’m providing you this context to set a precedence that our skin color isn’t a reflection of who we are or our story. We all have one; our own.
