Guest Bloggers: 

Guidelines for Guest Bloggers to Future Black Female Blog.

The Future Black Female blog caters to a global audience of mostly Black/African girls and young women aged 16-22. Contributions should speak clearly to an equitable, diverse, inclusive, and socially just future. We need posts that include messages of female empowerment. And highlight your local and national female narratives. We want posts that say more about you as a Black female and the work you do. How did you come to do that work and how do social, economic, academic factors in your country/local community impact you? People respond more to a story/face. It is not to promote your own blog or sell products but to share an inspiring story. 

We don’t want to just say what’s happening to Black females. We want people to get to know Black women who are working hard to make a difference.
