Welcome to BWG!

Candace Spears, Founder

Hi there! In case you haven’t heard, the success of Black women is not an exception. I started this blog to give vibe, voice, and empowerment to Black women everywhere.

Filling our own cups, lighting the fire of our confidence, magnifying our dreams, and exploring life on our terms is why BWG matters. Based in Wisconsin, living international life part-time, I’m a serial entrepreneur, wife to one man, and mom of three beautiful Black girls who will one day be… Black Women Great.

Our platform and all of the contributors are dedicated to celebrating the brilliance and achievements of Black women. We are passionate about empowering and inspiring Black women from all walks of life. At the same time, we’re also providing educational content that promotes personal growth and development.

At Black Woman Great, we believe in the power of storytelling and education to uplift, motivate, and create change.

Black Woman Great is part of the Spears Sparrow Collective family, a subsidiary of Floor23 Group, Inc. As a member of the Spears Sparrow Collective family, we benefit from the expertise and resources of a larger media organization, enabling us to bring you high-quality content and engage with a vibrant community of readers.

Our mission is to provide a platform where Black women’s stories can shine, their voices can be heard, we can be inspired, and where education is embraced as a catalyst for growth.

Through captivating articles, inspiring interviews, and thought-provoking features of famous black women and everyday Black women you may have never heard of, we not only showcase the amazing achievements of Black women in entrepreneurship, culture, and society but also offer educational resources that promote personal and professional development.

At Black Woman Great, we are committed to diversity, inclusivity, and the celebration of Black excellence. We believe in the power of representation and the importance of amplifying underrepresented voices. We embrace the intersectionality of identities and recognize the unique experiences and contributions of Black women around the world.

Join us on this exciting journey as we celebrate the accomplishments, resilience, beauty, and educational growth of Black women. We invite you to be part of our community, engage in meaningful conversations, and contribute to the ongoing celebration of Black Woman Great.
