What is Black Girl Speaks? 

The Black Girl Speaks (BGS) Movement is under the parent company of BGS, Inc. and was founded in 2005 to empower the disenfranchised, uplift the downtrodden, and heal the broken-spirited through artistic expression and activism. It began as a one-woman show and has since expanded to include enrichment workshops for adults & adolescents, full-casted theatrical productions, cultural diversity sensitivity trainings, and a membership-based virtual support group specifically for Black Girls globally. Along with allies, supporters, and partners, BGS offers community-oriented programs and initiatives to fulfill its mission. To learn more about our initiatives and join us in using your voice to heal ourselves and each other, visit the BGS Tea Room Membership page and subscribe

What is the Queen & Me Tea? 

The inaugural Queen & Me Tea was held in Washington, D.C. as a Farewell to Queen Michelle Obama in 2017.  Since then, Black Girls have come together as mothers, daughters, aunts, nieces, and sisters to honor a different dynamic Black Girl that has had a profound impact on us all.  This year, we are honoring the Aunt Teas of our community-at-large as we highlight the impact of our honoree, our own BGS community's, Kristin Hemingway.
