Blogger/Activist Karyn Washington, the popular creator of For Brown Girls, a movement to uplift and empower brown-hued Black women, has died from an apparent suicide.

Here Is FBG's Mission Statement :

FBG was created to celebrate the beauty of dark skin while combatting colorism and promoting self love! FBG was created to celebrate darker shades of brown- to encourage those struggling with accepting having a darker skin complexion to love and embrace the skin they are in. However, women of all shades may take away from FBG the universal and essential message of self love and acceptance.
