ABOUT THE WEBSERIES
Created and produced by Dr. Yaba Blay, Professional Black Girl is a webseries that celebrates everyday Black Girl culture.
Each episode is like a conversation with your homegirl, your sister, your auntie, or your mama. Covering everyday topics like hairstyles and hair care, personal fashion, and style, Professional Black Girl celebrates the simple joys of being a Black girl – the aspects of Black Girl culture that those who move through it might take for granted. The series reminds us that ‘Black Girl Magic’ isn’t just professional degrees and unprecedented achievement, but that it radiates from the extraordinariness of our everyday lives.
Season 1 of the Professional Black Girl video series premiered in September 2016.
The 13-webisode season features 17 Black women and girls – from Grammy Award-winning recording artist, Rapsody and Black feminist cultural critic, Joan Morgan, to 13-year-old world traveler Nahimana Machen and 2-year-old cutie Nazahah Sanaa.
Season 2 is currently under development and projected to be released in 2018.
