The Playlist For Us, By Us | A list of songs that make you proud to be a black woman (as if you weren’t already) 

By: Timoshanae V. Wellmaker

When is the last time you updated your playlist? Better yet, when is the last time you created a playlist full of songs that uplifted you? You know, the kind of songs that made you not only want to dance but also get up and go hug yourself in the mirror? Now, that’s some real music.

This February I’ve got that iTunes or Tidal playlist of yours covered. I’ve handpicked songs with you in mind, songs that are sure to remind you of how amazing it is to be a black woman. It’s a blessing. Add these songs to your morning routine or commute to work this month and be sure to smile it out all day!
