About Professional Black Girl

I started PROFESSIONAL BLACK GIRL in 2016 as an original web series. After 15 episodes, the people wanted more! But I didn’t have any more content to share nor any more money to create it. So, I started an Instagram page while I tried to figure out how I could keep us going. And literally, just like that, our community was born. Three years later, our Instagram page boasts over 100K followers (pops collar).

When I released Season 2 of our web series earlier this year, I made it a point to start each episode with a PBS-inspired voiceover:
Professional Black Girl Season 2 has been fully funded by the generous support of the global Professional Black Girl community. #WeAllWeGot
It was important to me that every single person who would ever watch the series knew that this content was made possible by a COMMUNITY of supporters who donated a total of over $70,000 (Kickstarter, PayPal, CashApp, Venmo, Zelle, personal checks, and cold hard cash) to ensure that I was not only able to produce the web series, but that I was also able to celebrate the launch of the series in and with the city and the people of New Orleans, where the second season was set. My heart remains FULL with that LOVE.


Professional Black Girl continues to need your SUPPORT!!
 


So much of what I’ve been able to do with and for our community over the past three years has been because I had the stability of a full-time academic position to rely upon and research funds to use. PBG was my public scholarship - my passion project - and I never had intentions of making money from it.

Wellllll....now that I am currently “at liberty,” freelancing, freestyling, and figuring it out, I need consistent support to not only sustain our community but to sustain myself because building and maintaining a digital community of our magnitude is indeed a full-time job.

And I DO PUT IN WORK, y’all. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE IT - but I sure could use your continued support so that PBG is truly a community sustained by who it represents, the “Professional Black Girl.”

If you believe in Professional Black Girl and/or if you believe in me, and would like to see us THRIVE, please consider becoming a patron of the Professional Black Girl community.

I'm keeping it simple and starting with three (3) tiers of patronage for now. I may add higher-priced tiers in the near future - let's see how it goes. If you feel like MAKING IT RAIN, do feel welcome to create a custom pledge amount of your own. And if you're not yet able to commit to monthly patronage, please feel welcome to make a one-time donation at any time. 

Thank you! SO very much. 

WE ALL WE GOT!

At this level of monthly support, I will be able to hire a "Creative Assistant" to help me to maintain the digital PBG community and my sanity.
