Since 2006, BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has been dedicated to the healthy development of young women and girls. BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc. seeks to build the self-esteem and self-worth of young women of color by changing their outlook on life, broadening their horizons, and helping them to empower themselves.

BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc. is an organization that takes an active role in being a part of the solution to the crisis facing young women of color. For the past four years, we have enjoyed the opportunity to enrich the lives of girls from 12 to 17 years old through mentorship, arts education, cultural exploration and public service. At BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc., young women are offered access to enrichment programs and opportunities that place special emphasis on personal development through the arts and cooperative learning.

BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc. continues to partner with BET Networks in the worldwide broadcast of BLACK GIRLS ROCK! The event continues to be a historic and monumental show highlighting the accomplishments of exceptional women of color who have made outstanding contributions in their careers, and who stand as inspirational and positive role models in their communities.
