A Message From
Melonie Davis MA, NCC, LCMHC-A
Pushing Black Girls Forward is a place to celebrate Black women and girls unabashedly, unapologetically, and publicly. I provide a space where Black women are gleams of intelligence, innovation, compassion, wisdom, leadership, and beauty. Where we are understood and do not have to justify ourselves. PBGF provides the counter space that is so very necessary in a society that is dense with both explicit and subliminal messages that silence Black women’s voices trivialize our narratives and diminish our presence. This organization is a vessel that uplifts black women and shapes the positive narrative and contributes to a rich history of Black women doing great things to advance society, and do so in the ranks of like minded women who understand the importance of this mission.
