Calling all little sisters and cool cousins! Megan Thee Stallion and Southern Black Girls are teaming up for a bus tour to create joy and empowerment to girls.
Through her Pete and Thomas Foundation, Megan is supporting the Southern Black Girls & Women’s Consortium’s #JoyIsOurJourney bus tour. Designed for Black girls, ladies, and gender-expansive youth ages 12 through 24, the function is part food truck, part block party, featuring health and fitness resources, just a little STEM education, music and dancing, and a chance to connect with each other in a great, supportive, safe space.
LaTosha Brown, who founded Southern Black Girls, and the Houston native rapper met for the very first time finally year’s Glamour Women of the entire year Awards (read Megan’s emotional acceptance speech here); just would go to show that whenever you put incredible ladies in exactly the same room, great things can occur!
We have been super excited to partner with the Pete and Thomas Foundation, Brown told THE MAIN. Megan may be the ultimate Southern Black girl. She actually is an entertainer, an artist, and an innovative who masterfully balances being truly a hot girl, a college girl, and a businesswoman, and she certainly embodies the unapologetic spirit of our company. Our partnership with the Pete and Thomas Foundation adds fuel to the mission of the Joy Is Our Journey tour, that is for connecting with Black girls and ladies through the entire South and create safe spaces to celebrate unlimited, unabashed Black girl joy. There’s so much waiting for you, and we anticipate all of the great work we shall do together. This just the start. Megan Thee Stallion herself said (in a statement), Both of us share exactly the same goalsto empower our young Black women, provide them with the resources to achieve success, and help them pursue their personal and professional dreams.
