Girls and Identity, Tweens and Teens: Part 2

“Black girl's features are beautiful but black girls aren’t”, “black girls rock”, and “what’s hair got to do with it” – this conversation will focus on what it means to be a black (race) girl (gender) in Canada, highlighting factors that influence identity, role models and self-esteem. We will discuss some of the stereotypes and share strategies to promote positive self-image and identity.
