Black women are a gift that keeps on giving. A lot of us wouldn’t be the people we are today if it weren’t for black women blessing us with their presence and their grace. The lessons black women have taught us have shaped and saved our lives in infinite ways. We owe them a great deal of gratitude.

The 2019 Black Girls Rock attendees took some time to share some words of thanks to their fellow women. Whether it was creating a space for their sisters or just providing an ear, black women have shown up and showed out for not only us but for themselves, too.

Watch as some of your faves share just why they’re thankful for the blessing known as the black woman.
