Magical Black Girls You Should Follow On Instagram

 

Is your Instagram looking a little dry? Cabin fever from Snowstorm Jonas got you refreshing your homepage every five minutes? 

 

It can be hard to find new accounts to follow that will give you life and don't make you want to unfollow within a couple minutes. This post should help just a little bit. 

 

Here are 14 of my favorite Instagram profiles that are just oozing black-girl-magical-excellence-and-awesomeness. These ladies are real people with real knowledge, inspiration, and beauty to share. Check them out below!


@lalahdelia is your super-gorgeous spiritual godmother.

Ms. Lalah is good for delivering a message that speaks to your soul. Not to mention her beautiful photography. Oh, and don't try to guess her age. You will be wrong. 

Release what's on your heart, mind and spirit onto paper. Writing/journaling is an ethereal meditation.

“the word “art” is something the west has never understood. art is supposed to be a part of a community. like, scholars are supposed to be a part of a community… art is to decorate people’s houses, their skin, their clothes, to make them expand their minds, and it’s supposed to be right in the community, where they can have it when they want it… it's supposed to be as essential as a grocery store… that’s the only way art can function naturally.” - amiri baraka // many thanks to artist giselle buchanan @vishuddha for digesting in the goodness that is @nomadyard. a new york resident, she listed #nomadyard as a must visit while in dc. and what was to be a quick visit became a 3 hour holistic experience. we talked ownership of self, i drooled at her amazing textile art, and we sipped tea + coconut water as she explored our space. hers is the affirmation we need to know that we are a needed. that we fill a void - people are whole and the businesses that support them must be holistic. as we continue to fight to remain a part of the noma/ivy city #northeast #dc community- we will continue to define art for those who lack true innerstanding + understanding. for those who don't know the value of spaces like ours, we will reiterate. reiterate. reiterate. we are much more than another retail store, we are inspired by and shaped by the community in which we exist. we feed and receive. a space where the lost value of reciprocation is intrinsic. and we will not be moved. #nomadyard #bestofdc #xodvf #iamanartistandimsensitiveaboutmyish #quote #amiribaraka #iwillnotbemoved #agentrifieddc @agentrifieddc
