Welcome to Black Girl Tragic.

Black Girl Tragic is an online space to tell stories of girls and women of color who have had their lives cut short by violence, whether inflicted on self or by others. We aim simply to tell stories. We do not witchhunt. Nor do we take up causes, other than to illuminate the plight of black women. 

This site arose from a need to disrupt the traditional 24/7 news cycle, which focuses on one crisis and moves to another. Our goal at Black Girl Tragic is to highlight the discrimination, abuse, mistreatment, unfairness and tragedy inflicted upon women of color throughout the diaspora. 

We oftentimes spotlight systemic patterns of abuse, neglect or apathy that adversely affect people of color. This does not mean that we do not love our country or are not subject to its laws like anyone else. It simply means that we feel our main obligation and loyalty is to tell the truth.
