Blogger Suicide: Karyn Washington For Brown Girls | #theClippings

April 11, 2014

To blog is to become voice of that which one champions.  Karyn Washington championed Brown Girls with her blog For Brown Girls.

FBG was created to celebrate the beauty of dark skin while combatting colorism and promoting self love! FBG was created to celebrate darker shades of brown- to encourage those struggling with accepting having a darker skin complexion to love and embrace the skin they are in. However, women of all shades may take away from FBG the universal and essential message of self love and acceptance.

Not only does Dee Dee have a successful career, she understands her growth is to learn, give, share and love… as an objective she established in 6th grade, dee dee was already set on her divine path of order when ‘deciding’ to have a family at a young age, straight out of high school while pursuing her other goals of becoming the first in her family to receive a college degree.  dee dee always wanted a big family, asking for 4 children, receiving 7 and 2 that miscarried.  Loving the entire birth process, she was asked by her nurse midwives to speak at Emory University a few times which led to finding out about being a doula.  Volunteering with Jane Fonda’s, GCAPP organization, dee dee made that possible and can be found giving her time to teens who may not have someone to be with them in labor while happily sharing advice with new moms.  Having 7 children (6 boys and one girl) and married for 24 years continues to fascinates her mind.
