2016 has been the year of black girls winning. The Knowles sisters both have #1 albums (LEMONADE & A Seat At The Table). Queen of Katwe, a Disney biopic about a Ugandan girl (Phiona Mutesi) who turns out to be a chess prodigy, released and captured our hearts, taking $7.75 million at the box office and scoring 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. The girls of Pretoria High School made international headlines for protesting their school’s racist hair policies. A mere extension of what is being called “Black History Year,” this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg that is #BlackGirlMagic.
