Twin Authors Celebrate All Things Black Girl with Book Series

 

B is for Black Girl is a book celebrating all things Black Girl. The brand was created by twins, Chelsae and Channing Moreland, to empower and inspire Black girls to embrace their uniqueness, while authoring and asserting a positive representation of Black girl culture for all audiences.

“We are, twins, mothers, teachers and now authors,” the Moreland twins stated. “We grew up with the privilege of seeing positive representation of Black Women in print and in reality. We over-stand the value of seeing people that “look like you” represented in a positive light. We recognize the lack of positive Black female representation, and the importance of creating your own narratives. As mothers, educators, authors and activists our mission is to help young Black girls feel good about who and what they are.”

B is for Black boy was written to celebrate the awe-inspiring nature of the Black male; To speak life into our Black boys and to empower them to manifest their highest potential. While authoring and asserting a positive representation of Black boys for all audiences.

I recently interviewed the girls where they chatted deeper into what their brand is about.

Why was it important to you, to write this kind of a book?

I (Channing) gave birth to my daughter (who is my 3rd child) in May 14 2018. From the day I found out I was having a girl I was on the hunt for books made especially for Black Girls, my daughter Nandi changed the game for me. When Chelsae and I were younger we had a collection of books, never lacking representation at home. However we know that in the “real world” positive representation is few and far between. We know that for girls without access to a personal library in their homes there is no guarantee that they’ll come across books that are made to embrace, empower and inspire them. They have little control over what their exposed to and what may influence them. Writing this book was important to us because we want our daughters and all Black girls to see themselves, to love themselves and their Black sisters in all shades across the diaspora, we want them all to be proud of who they are and to feel empowered and inspired.
