In this blog post, I’m collaborating with two other influencers to discuss dark-skinned women in social media and ask the question on all of our minds. Is there a place for dark-skinned women, the plus-size community & social media to coexist? Beyond this topic, we also came together to support another dark-skinned content creator Blake of Signed, Blake. Keep reading for my thoughts on dark-skin women & the plus-size community, and check out how we each slayed Blake’s Amazon The Drop collection.

It was Tupac who said “Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice. I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots.” And how he remembered Marvin Gaye singing to him and how he had him feelin’ like black was the thing to be.

Lastly, I’m glad we came together to support another darker skin content creator Blake of Signed, Blake.
