Lauren Ritchie and Makeen Zachery

It's the co-opting of Black girl looks and lingo for me! Join us for the second episode of Black Girl Blueprint where we get into Blackfishing, Blaccents, and the story behind our name.

From Jalaiah Harmon's Renegade Tik Tok movement to the Kar-Jenner's "invention" of "Boxer Braids." We'll be discussing how Black girl's creations are far too often made mainstream without credit. We explore our own childhood horror stories of having to code-switch, get into the difference between appropriation and appreciation, and unpack how the world can better credit Black women and girls for their contributions to the culture moving forward.
