Weemagine was created in 2016 to provide a safe space for children of color and the people who love them.
Let’s face it, social and traditional media aren’t always kind to our communities. We are constantly inundated with images that are negative, dangerous and inaccurate. As parents, it can be discouraging trying to find the resources and inspiration necessary to inspire our children to be great.
Weemagine provides a platform for the good stuff. We provide resources necessary for parenting children of color while providing thought-provoking content including stories of real people achieving their dreams.
In 2017, Weemagine launched Weemagine Storytellers, an organization devoted to encouraging and inspiring creativity in children and young adults! Visit the Weemagine Storytellers tab above for more info.
We hope you enjoy what you read here and help inspire those babies to stand a little taller in the skin they’re in!
