Babygirl, The Black Girlhood Project: Stories of Chicago Women Rising serves as the launch for “Babygirl: The Black Girlhood Archive,” a public, digital archive celebrating and documenting Black girlhood. The initial project will feature video interviews with Black women and girls across generations, chronicling their experiences growing up in Chicago. These videos, along with portraits of the participants, will be shared at an event in Summer 2019 commemorating the launch of the archive and featuring a panel with the participants and a public writing workshop. The archive will then receive submissions with the initial videos serving as a model.
