Malikah Berry Rogers, executive director of Southern Black Girls, said the grant program is a “movement of transformation” with a mission to unlock the potential of Black girls and young women.
Southern Black Girls addresses the lack of philanthropic investments that fund programs focused on Black women and girls in the South.
“By investing in Black women and girls, we are investing in a brighter, more equitable future for our communities. In fact, we invite everyone who shares our vision to join our movement because it’s about giving wings to the aspirations of our next generation who will, undoubtedly, change our world for the better,” Brown said.
According to the Southern Black Girls website, the Black Girls Dream Fund seeks to support Black women-led organizations that support girls and women through projects surrounding education, health and wellness, economic opportunity, social justice, leadership, and empowerment. The fund supports 13 states in the southern region, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, East Texas, West Virginia, and Virginia.
