Abstract

Charting my personal experiences with Saving Our Lives Hear Our Truths (SOLHOT), I argue that centering the lived experiences of Black girls and including their creative forms of expression and knowledge production allow for a rearticulation of forms of agency, social power, and meaning making. Thinking specifically about the ways Black girls are stereotyped and pathologized, I discuss how Black girls create, talk back, and resist through their creative processes of dance, play, and art.
