Black Girl Blueprint was founded on the belief that Black girls have long been the ones to set the trends and transform the culture in a way that only we can. To put it simply: our podcast is devoted to showcasing raw, unfiltered, and unapologetic Gen Z Black girl perspectives. Our weekly episodes will center the voices and celebrate the accomplishments of young Black women who have made their own impact on and within the culture. | Follow us on Instagram: @blackgirlblueprint | Lauren: @laurenaritchie @itsecogal | Makeen: @makeenz @blkgirlculture | Email us at blackgirlblueprint@gmail.com

Not a Gen Z and I’m hooked.

I’ve listened from episode one. It’s my go to podcast for my Saturday walks. The content is funny, interesting and thought provoking. At times I have to remind myself that these are two young women as I’m blown away by their wisdom. I’m not a Gen Z, and I’ve been hooked from the beginning and have shared this podcast with others. Thank you both for the reflection and representing Black girls/women. Big ups!!

Groundbreaking Podcast

An amazing social and culture experience of black girls within every episode. Having conversations for black girls that most people do not want to touch on. I would give 10 stars if i was able too.
