Celebrating Strengths of Black Girls

Youth Development

Through Celebrating Strengths of Black Girls: An Intersectionality Approach, we work to advance equity for women and girls of color. The primary goal of the current research focuses on building resiliency that involves identifying assets and resources that serve as protective factors. The project explores culturally relevant interventions and mathematics curricula and the impact on the personal assets (self esteem), cultural assets (racial identity beliefs), and school performance of Black girls.
