Updated: Jan 28, 2019



Who are we? We’re a team of black women opening the door and knocking down barriers to amplify the voices of women, worldwide. We’re your friends, your sisters, and your daughters. We’re creating a space for women of color. What makes us different? Our commitment to be ourselves.


“I am a feminist, and what that means to me is much the same as the meaning of the fact that I am Black: it means that I must undertake to love myself and to respect myself as though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect.” – June Jordan'

June Jordan, a Caribbean-American poet once stated,  “I am a feminist, and what that means to me is much the same as the meaning of the fact that I am Black: it means that I must undertake to love myself and to respect myself though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect.” There’s something special about being not only a woman but a black woman. There’s something special about being able to walk in a room and change the whole dynamic of a conversation. There’s something special about being a black woman. 2 Curlie Souls was founded with one primary goal: to uplift women of color. Our very mantra is, “Our curls don’t define us. We define our curls”. I know to some, the statement may seem cliche but have you ever taken the time to apply this statement to your own mindset? Taking it a bit further, in open spaces- you have a voice that is one of the most powerful that the world has to offer. Your identity is paired with a perspective that brings a whole new meaning to life. 2CS is dedicated to making sure you know that. We’re here to uplift, remind, and educate.


“Too often, we internalize and adjust to the limitations and labels imposed by society, deeming us as invisible beings. The messages that society embeds within us — 'don’t wear your hair this way, don’t show too much, don’t speak up, don't be aggressive.' These words force black women to drift from their natural self and be defined by the external and internal pressures associated with being both Black and Woman”

While navigating in a world that has conditioned Black Women to dim our lights in the spaces that we enter, it is crucial that we create our very own spaces to be heard and supported. Too often, we internalize and adjust to the limitations and labels imposed by society, deeming us as invisible beings. The messages that society embeds within us — “don’t wear your hair this way, don’t show too much, don’t say too many forces.” These words force black women to drift from their natural self and be defined by the external and internal pressures associated with being both Black and a woman. Naturally, we uplift and pour into others, but what happens when we manifest the magic we employ and pour into ourselves? 2 Curlie Souls is not only the small team that spends their time posting to social media pages. Our platform embraces all women that can relate to our message. We’re indeed every woman and we are excited for this journey.
