Topics: feminism girlhood

Dr. Lindsey talks about the unique challenges faced by young black girls, particularly about the very limited range of public figures for them to draw influence from. However, with the Internet, Dr. Lindsey is excited about the possibility for black girls to begin putting forth their own content and creating a broader spectrum of images of black females.
