Creators of Black Girls Magazine Come to Malton for March Break

Posted on Mar 16, 2017 by Stefanie Stuart

Malton, Ontario, Wednesday March 15rd, 2017. To kick off March Break, Four Corners Health Centre was thrilled to welcome the young creators of Black Girls Magazine to Malton in partnership with the Malton Library.

Creators: Morgan 13; Mbabazi 13; Marley 9; Kamara 12; Taylor 12 and Deva 13

The girls talked about the importance of speaking up for yourself and making use of your talents during a Q&A session. They find inspiration for their articles from real life experiences, and use computer software to create their own graphics for the original content in their comic strips.

Stefanie Stuart, Health Promoter at Four Corners Health Centre helped organize the event. “The magazine gives an honest and authentic perspective that is often missing in mainstream media,” she said.

Children at the event were given an opportunity to create their own work. Some pieces were even selected for inclusion in the upcoming issue of the magazine.
To conclude, children were challenged to think of one way that they too could create change in their communities. “You don’t have to wait until you are a grown up, you can have an impact right now,” said Annette Bazira-Okafor of Black Girls Magazine. She’s right, Black Girls Magazine proves it.
