A group of teenage high school students hanging out during a recent Black Girls Literacies Project meeting. Everyone is casually dressed and comfortable. They’re seated around a coffee table piled high with school boxes, art supplies and snacks. They’re in the middle of doing a project. Everyone is happy and smiling, and several of the students are making the peace sign with their hands. It looks fun and friendly.

Doctoral student Barrett Rosser and the Philadelphia Writing Project are expanding the notion of literacy to help young Black women express self-love, build community and foster their identities.
