About the Founder
I’m the friend you can’t have on speakerphone. I’m Teryn D. Shipman, a twenty-four-year-old born and raised in Atlanta, GA and I have a lot to say!
I’m a recent-ish college grad from The University of Alabama where I received my degree in Political Science and minored in African American Studies and what seems like a concentration in social justice. I am now a third year J.D. Candidate at one of six Historically Black Law Schools in the country! ✊🏾
This blog started as just a way for me to express my love of politics, my community, traveling, and my challenges in adulting. We talk about it all. It is now evolving to be a media production company that centers the stories and experiences of Black girls, women, and gender non-conforming folks.
For Black Girls Who Have A Lot to Say is for us, the ones with no filter and even the ones who thought it but didn’t say it out loud, (especially the ones who did). It’s the intersection of figuring shit out, while also living your best-informed life.
Want to book me to speak, collaborate, or just say hey, reach out, I can't wait!
Teryn Denae 💋
