When I was about ten years old and I was questioning everything, I wished for a resource, a tool and an acceptance letter to tell me that I am valuable, I do deserve it, my worth is infinite and that I am a brilliant beacon of light. And while there was no book for me, I can rejoice because today, black girls have more than 100 illustrations of their worth, value, brilliance, beauty and strength. I salute Dr. Cherita Weatherspoon and every woman who gave of themselves to inspire a generation of black girls who will one day be black women. Thank you all for letting your light shine so that little black girls and black women can have permission to do the same.
