The Four Women Blog is inspired by Nina Simone's poem "Four Women". Although released in 1966, black women have been negatively portrayed long before the creation of the song and well afterwards. But in recent years, black women have taken the reins back on how they are portrayed and began to define for themselves who they are, which has debunked many negative stereotypes about them. This blog is to further dispel myths created by society and mass media and shed light on the complexity of the black woman.
