If you’re not familiar with the term #BlackGirlMagic, where have you been? For centuries black women have been conditioned to believe that their facial features and hair are less than that of their European counterparts. The phrase Black Girl Magic is a means for us to celebrate the beautifully versatile qualities of black women from around the globe.
Although there are many instances of black girl magic being displayed on social media in the US and UK, we’ve done a roundup of the top beauties from the African continent who’ve been serving us ‘face’ on IG.
