Sisters From The Bronx Ignore Own Financial Difficulties To Do Something Awesome For The Young Girls In Their Neighborhood

February 8, 2017

Cassandra Pryor and Melody Smalls are sisters from the Bronx who started a small movement called "Dear Black Girl," a movement to provide a community for emotional support and sisterhood to african-american girls ages 7-14. After losing her long-term boyfriend unexpectedly, Cassandra was left with two children to take care of on her own. Her sister, Melody, immediately moved into their one-bedroom apartment to help.

"Dear Black Girl" came as an idea in the midst of the financial struggle of the two sisters who decided to pursue the program even in the midst of financial difficulty.
