An eye-opening experience back in 2010 was the beginning of it all. A birthday celebration filled with beautiful brown girls, at a store with primarily white-featured dolls available and chosen by these girls, was what made Sheri and Corey Crawley realize that their own daughters, as many other girls of color, were dealing with self-esteem and skin-tone related issues that needed to change. The determination of these parents to be part of the solution led them to create Pretty Brown Girl, and what started as a unique product line for girls has evolved into a global movement.
Over the past 10 years, from the early stages of the D.R.E.A.M program in schools and the establishment of The Pretty Brown Girl (PBG) Foundation (a 501c3 non-profit organization) in 2014, PBG’s Founders and Team have worked tirelessly to fulfill the community’s need to offer and sustain grassroots programs accessible to girls with the greatest needs, with the strong commitment to inspire positive self-esteem and self-love among young women of color.
Today, our goal is to be able to overcome geographical barriers and reach over 5 million girls around the United States. Pretty Brown Girl Foundation is working in communities daily, encouraging girls to reach for the stars and focus on their gifts, talents and education that can be used to elevate humanity.
