Cultivating Black girl magic with digital storytelling
Our work helps Black girls reconnect their power. Connect to herstory. Connect to Culture. Connect to healing Black girl pain to ultimately liberate Black girl minds and cultivate Black girl Magic. —Founder and Executive Director, La’Keisha Gray-Sewell

Founded in 2012Girls Like Me Project supports Black girls ages 11-17 in Chicago to critically examine social, cultural, and political ideologies in storytelling and media so that they will be able to overcome stigmas and negative stereotypes. They equip girls with the tools and strategies to become influential, independent digital storytellers who transform their communities and foster global sisterhood. As of April 2022, they serve 300 girls annually.
