The Biggest #BlackGirlMagic Moments Of 2018 To Fire You Up For The New Year

“We are not a trend. We are here to stay."

Published December 28, 2018

Black girls were seriously winning all year. And we got the proof!

Black women have to deal with a lot on a daily basis, so it was nice to witness that love, appreciation, and spread of #BlackGirlMagic throughout 2018. Meghan Markle gave us #BlackGirlMagic inspo with her Black AF royal wedding. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams gave us all the #BlackGirlMagic we’ve always wanted with the Destiny's Child reunion at this year's Coachella. Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield Norris gave us a dose of #BlackGirlMagic every week when they hit their Red Table Talk. From all the dope magazine covers to the magical Black girl link ups, this year showed us that there truly is strength in numbers.
