Megan Thee Stallion and Southern Black Girls Are Launching a Bus Tour Your Little Sister Totally Has to Go to

·2 min read

Calling all little sisters and cool cousins! Megan Thee Stallion and Southern Black Girls are teaming up for a bus tour to bring joy and empowerment to young girls.

Through her Pete and Thomas Foundation, Megan is supporting the Southern Black Girls & Women's Consortium's #JoyIsOurJourney bus tour. Created for Black girls, young women, and gender-expansive youth ages 12 through 24, the event is part food truck, part block party, featuring health and wellness resources, a little STEM education, music and dancing, and an opportunity to connect with one another in a fun, supportive, safe space.

LaTosha Brown, who founded Southern Black Girls, and the Houston native rapper met for the first time at last year's Glamour Women of the Year Awards (read Megan's emotional acceptance speech here); just goes to show that when you put incredible women in the same room, great things can happen!

“We are super excited to partner with the Pete and Thomas Foundation,” Brown told The Root. “Megan is the ultimate Southern Black girl. She is an entertainer, an artist, and a creative who masterfully balances being a hot girl, a college girl, and a businesswoman, and she certainly embodies the unapologetic spirit of our organization. Our partnership with the Pete and Thomas Foundation adds fuel to the mission of the Joy Is Our Journey tour, which is to connect with Black girls and young women throughout the South and create safe spaces to celebrate unlimited, unabashed Black girl joy. There is so much in store, and we look forward to all the great work we will do together. This just the beginning.” Megan Thee Stallion herself said (in a statement), “We both share the same goals—to empower our young Black women, give them the resources to succeed, and help them pursue their personal and professional dreams.”

The mini festival, which is free to attend, runs through September 17. Click here to register or find out more.
