40 Beautiful quotes for bold black women

Quotes for black women

Being a black woman means a lot of things but to me, it is the equivalence of power, strength, and courage. In a world where being black and being a woman means you need to work twice as hard as anybody else to get where you want to, we have to constantly remind ourselves of our self-worth.

The power to face all life throws at us and being able to fix our crown and stand tall. Even when the world berates us for being so strong.

The strength to keep on doing what needs to be done for our families, friends, and all those around us to be happy. Even when we have no one else to lean on.

The courage to be bold and show the world who we are. To go out there and get what we want, be who we want to be, and achieve our dreams.

This is for all the black queens out there shaking the world in their own ways. You getting that degree, growing that business, fighting for your fellow sisters, or building a home for your loved ones. Whatever you are doing here is a quick reminder of how amazing you are. Enjoy these 40 quotes for bold black women:

This Queen right here is flawed yet phenomenal, valuable and unique!”
