Black Girls Magazine is a magazine written by and for black girls. Founder and Director Annette Bazira-Okafor wanted her daughter to see herself in the magazines she would flip through and the dress-up apps she would play with. She invited a group of girls in the Toronto area to start writing for the magazine which now puts out two issues each year. She is currently expanding the magazine to develop a new teen edition. You can subscribe to this magazine through their website. If your daughter is interested in writing for this magazine please contact our office and we will be happy to provide you with more information. https://www.facebook.com/frombgmwithlove/
