Book Description: Black Women have been shattering the glass ceilings over and over and over again. In this book I celebrate many of the Black Women who made history in Westchester County, New York. While we covered many of these women in Black Westchester, the online news magazine and in the pages of our monthly newspaper, I wanted to put as many of them as I can in one book as a celebration of the achievements of African American Women in Westchester.
You may recognize a lot of the names but prayerfully you will read about some you never heard of and learn about something about a few of these women I have compiled this book. While I pushed hard to release this book to celebrate the intersection of Black History Month and Women’s History Month, I present an expanded list of Awesome Black Women of Westchester County that should be celebrated all year long.
The phrase Black Girl Magic was born as a way to celebrate the beauty, power and resilience of Black women. Black Girl Magic was the mantra, the vision in creating a piece of work that can celebrated and used as a reference book in the public libraries, public schools and colleges in the county and surrounding areas.
As the Editor-In-Chief of Black Westchester, I wanted to document the stories that hero the beauty of blackness and the bravery of these natural leaders. Those who shattered glass ceiling, dedicated themselves to make their community better and paved the way for both young Black boys and girls, who I especially feel need to read this book. Since we are often inspired by the Black Women who use their voices, positions and platforms to redefine the future while navigating racism, sexism, colorism, classism, ableism, heterosexism and other forms of oppression or “isms,” and still they rise like Maya Angelou said, it was only fitting to put out this book, the first of many that will celebrate African Americans in Westchester.
