Recently, I had the opportunity to experience a bit of magic here in the ATL–a bit of Black Girl Magic, that is–by taking part in this month’s edition of Black Girl Magic Tours!
Black Girl Magic Tours is a guided, luxury mural crawl that celebrates brown girls. This tour tells the story of the beauty, power, and resilience of black women. Regardless of your race or gender, you will leave this tour feeling totally inspired. And, there are lots of sweet treats and surprises along the way!
Dr. Tarika Sullivan, the founder and creator of Black Girl Magic Tours, has curated an excursion unlike any other. The inspiration behind the origins of the tour stem from Sullivan’s global travels and her desire to “celebrate the strength, beauty, and brilliance of black women.” The art on this mural crawl is a gorgeous dedication to the Black women who paved the way for us all and continue to make an indelible mark on our culture and society as a whole.
Dr. Sullivan’s background is in education. And let me tell you–school was definitely in session! We learned so much history, and we learned about ourselves in the process.
Another fun element of this tour is the conversations we had as a group while we traveled from one stop to another. We connected in such an incredible way over the course of this 3 1/2 hour tour…so much so that we’ve made plans to hang out again soon!
I know the ‘Rona has been ruining plans all year. But never fear, Black Girl Magic Tours has taken every precaution to make this a safe and fun experience for everyone. Temperature checks and masks are mandatory, and we kept our masks on as we were transported from location to location. Plus, the group sizes are kept small, which also gave things an intimate feel.
Each tour showcases a different set of murals, so I highly encourage you to attend several times!
I won’t share every single detail from the tour. But I will tell you that you MUST attend ASAP! Get your Instagrammable pics. Get your fill of history. Get your life. Get your Black Girl Magic!
