Latest BGDNF Stories 

Take Up Space, sis.  


A Note From our Founder,

Yasmin Harrell


To all the Black girls and women in the African Diaspora: 

Black Girls Don't Need Filters™ is a digital hub for our stories, our truth, our power, our magic, our realness. 

The idea to create this platform was divinely conceived in 2015 when I was finishing my master's program in African American Studies. But perhaps the initial seed that gave 

birth to this community was planted in between all the candid conversations I've had with Black women over the course of my life. Whether it was talks with my mama, sister, friends, grandmothers or Black women I've met in passing, I've always carried our stories with me. 


Black Girls Don't Need Filters™ is the manifestation of my passion turned purpose to amplify our voices, our experiences, our thoughts, our feelings. I look forward to sharing space with you, sis.


Much love and light, 

- Yasmin
