The PLWG Proudly Partner with Sweet Honey Child

sweet honey child logoSweet Honey Child (SHC) has everything to do with fostering self esteem and empowering little African-American girls to be proud of their uniqueness. When a four year old African-American girl requested a Barbie to celebrate her birthday party, the mother and her aunt became concerned when the little girl insisted that she wanted a “White Barbie” only. The auntie of the little girl, Jeri Stone, realized there were no selections in the current market that little African-American girls could identify with. There were little or zero everyday products encouraging, reinforcing and celebrating the importance and beauty of little brown darlings.

Exactly 14 years ago, Sweet Honey Child came into being with the aim of celebrating all brown girls across the United States and globally at large.

Brown Girls Low Self-esteem

Realities in modern American and immense studies over the years have indicated the African-American girl is highly likely to growshc barretts up with negative and low self-esteem, portraying a pitiable self-image in comparison with a white girl.
