Black Girls CODE is devoted to showing the world that black girls can code, and do so much more. By reaching out to the community through workshops and after school programs, Black Girls CODE introduces computer coding lessons to young girls from underrepresented communities in programming languages such as Scratch or Ruby on Rails. Black Girls CODE has set out to prove to the world that girls of every color have the skills to become the programmers of tomorrow. By promoting classes and programs we hope to grow the number of women of color working in technology and give underprivileged girls a chance to become the masters of their technological worlds. Black Girls CODE’s ultimate goal is to provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the 1.4 million computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 2020, and to train 1 million girls by 2040.
Since our launch in April 2011, Black Girls CODE has had the honor of bringing technology and entertainment to many wonderful girls of color. By teaching the girls programming and game design, we hope to have started the lifelong process of developing in them a true love for technology and the self-confidence that comes from understanding the greatest tools of the 21st century.

And though we at Black Girls CODE cannot overstate…

I loved the song I’m Every Woman song by Chaka Khan.  I would sing to the top of my lungs: I’mmmmmmm every woman, it’s all in me, anything you want done, baby, I’ll do it naturally. This song made feel like I could do anything. It’s got a real good groove to it and every time I heard it I was on top of the world.  At least that is what I felt. I even love the part when Chaka says I can read your thoughts right now, everyone from A to Z…….. because in my mind I could. That made me feel powerful. Yet one day, I saw these words I am Every Woman, It’s all in me in a different light.

I was on a three-month sabbatical from social media, people, places and things. So much was going on. I was doing a lot of things that did not seem to be fun anymore and my immune system was under attack.  On this journey of self-discovery and love, I’ve learned to listen to my body. Any kind of pain or illness is your body attempting to get your attention.  Some other clues for me where my short temper, agitation, not sleeping, and just feeling tired.  It was time for me to take off my superwoman cape.  Yet I was resisting the feeling of taking off the cape because I am every woman and it’s all in me too: 1) multitask and make sure everything gets done, 2) say yes when I really mean no,…
