About the Founder & Editors
Hey! My name is Stephanie Younger and I am a 17-year-old student activist, organizer and writer who advocates for womanism, diversity in S.T.E.A.M, the abolition of youth prisons and gun violence prevention. In May 2017, I created Black Feminist Collective when I wrote an article spotlighting Black girls, women and non-binary people challenging the status quo. After a year and a half, I decided to become the editor-in-chief, and began collecting, editing and publishing writings from other Black people. You can view my full bio here, and keep up with me by following me on Instagram and Twitter.
Hey everyone, my name is Jourdan Lobban (@writqueen & @QJWriter). I am 19 (just shy of 20) and a proud Delawarean advocating for gender equality, demolition of racial constructs, and the end of family/child/intimate partner abuse culture to name a few. Being into journalism has always been a part of my routine, but it wasn’t until I found publications like Black Feminist Collective that my voice could be heard in a space that celebrated it. When I am not napping and reading, or writing, practicing empowering self-talk fills up my typical day.
