Blackgirl Gold Unapologetic, Incorporated is a non-profit public charity.
We employ three tools to leverage power for blackgirls who are enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program. These tools include writing workshops; annual scholarships and awards; and intergenerational connections.

WRITE. FUND. CONNECT.
We provide writing workshops based on the BGU Writes of Passage curriculum: "'I Am..'," "Spit the Lit," and "Author the Culture." This non-static curriculum integrates the literacies of Hip Hop Feminism (as well as earlier canons) with academic and creative writing techniques to foster innovation and to affirm healthy self-images for blackgirls.
We provide annual scholarships and awards to blackgirls: Mama Mary Scholarship for undergraduate students; Mama Audre Scholarship for graduate students; Warrior Award for mothers; and Reclaiming My Time Award to honor self-care practices.
We provide intergeneration connections for blackgirls throughout the country based upon gift-specific resources and needs.
