Most commonly referred to as the ‘dirty dirty’. It is known as the city of dreams and opportunity for those of African-American descent…especially women. It can also be known as the land of puffed promises and rubber checks depending on which end of the stick you’re tappin’ on.
Being a pledged member of the majority sorority has its ups and downs. ‘Black Girl in The City’ follows one Black woman on her journey to self as she strives to break free from the majority and live as her own minority. Success as she sees it, love and life, family, her dreams and of course…the deal dilly! All of these things sprinkled with the f**** ups, wins & losses, and sometimes just plain on stupid s*** we all face at one point or another in life.
If you’re easily offended by the raw and uncut truth, put your internet savvy to good use and click the ‘back’ button now. BGITC isn’t for everyone, but if you’re the same kind of ‘Black Girl’ I am it doesn’t matter what city you rep, you’ll still straight dig it.
The thoughts and expressions spit here do not represent Black women collectively, nor do they speak on behalf of women in general.
