February 25, 2012, is National Pretty Brown Girl Day! The organization is calling for all girls and women across the globe to celebrate themselves, families, and friends as a way for brown girls of all ages, cultures, and ethnicities to empower themselves and boost their self-confidence. Pretty Brown Girls encourages families, youth mentoring groups, civic organizations and churches locally and nationally to embrace the differences among their youth. They feel (and I agree) it is important for girls to understand that no matter what their skin tone they are beautiful inside and out.
