Fueled by the insights of women of diverse backgrounds, including Michelle Obama, Angela Davis, Shonda Rhimes, Misty Copeland Yara Shahidi, and Mary J. Blige, this book is a celebration of black women's voices and experiences that will become a collector's items for generations to come.

Maxine Waters shares the personal fulfillment of service.

Erykah Badu, Toshi Reagon, Mickalane Thomas, Solange Knowles-Ferguson, and Rihanna offer insights on creativity and how they use it to stay in tune with their magic.

A must read for all black girls and women.

I wish I had something like this when I was growing up. Hearing stories from women who I can relate to is the missing piece I needed. Thank you Beverly for creating this book.

Dope!

I must say that I enjoyed listening to Black Girls Rock. I loved listening to Beverly Bond narrate. I also appreciated the excerpts from the honorary Black Girls who Rocked on BET's stage.

We always knew and know how amazing we were and still are. I am glad everyone else is now aware!

Motivational, Inspiring, and Refreshing!

Inner Beauty of a Race that's already Superior!

I loved this book. The way it was written and told made me as a female, daughter, niece, granddaughter, friend and sister look at life from different angles begin a black woman, however, a black Caribbean woman in America. It made me proud to be me and see us as black women coming together to tell our truths rather than curtail it to fit other ideologies that aren't our own. One Love to my sisters and my people.
