Since 2010, Pretty Brown Girl, Inc. (PBG) has continued its commitment to supporting young women in pursuit of higher education. PBG’s mission to empower Black and Brown girls while encouraging self-acceptance by cultivating social, emotional and intellectual well-being is realized through the hundreds of girls we serve.
For more than ten years, Pretty Brown Girl has had a special commitment to helping girls of color pursue and realize their dreams and goals through leadership and empowerment training. Our annual Pretty Brown Girl Day and School Club Curriculum have positively impacted hundreds of girls. We have continued the tradition of excellence in programming, virtually, despite the challenges of COVID-19.
Our pledge to ensure young women achieve their dreams has expanded through the Patricia Harris-Johnson Leadership Scholarship for 2022 graduating high school seniors. The scholarship was named in honor of the late Mrs. Patricia Harris-Johnson, the mother of Pretty Brown Girl Founder, Sheri Crawley. She was a graduate of Bennett College, a Historically Black College and University. Mrs. Harris-Johnson inspired and embodied the Pretty Brown Girl mission. She was a phenomenal Educator, Entrepreneur, Author, Motivational Speaker, and Community Leader. Her legacy of educational excellence will continue to live on through the Patricia Harris-Johnson Leadership Scholarship.
This year, the Pretty Brown Girl Foundation will award scholarships at $2,500 to graduating high school seniors from the Class of 2022. We are invested in developing the next generation of girls who will empower the world. Thank you for your continued support of Pretty Brown Girl!
