AFRU is an online Black-led and majority Black-owned lifestyle magazine for women that stiches together light everyday topics with navigation of more difficult intersectional spaces — all while allowing for the kind of messiness that is part of human nature.

Bringing global voices to global life
We are committed to being a place for global women on all colors and creeds to take charge in matters involving them. To be a place for the next generation of women to be about itself and write on what it cares about.
We have a slight focus on matters important to women of color while still being inclusive of all.
In addition to our activism and journalistic work, we also seek to work with organizations that are aligned with our ambition to help younger global audiences navigate what it means to be part of transformational change.
But give us a good face slap if we ever take ourselves too seriously!
Write for us?
What happened to you? How did it affect you? Most importantly, is it interesting to anyone but you?
If so, we want to know: AFRU is soliciting reader contributions for our It Happened To Me column.
We handle all community contributors with the utmost discretion and assign only the most understanding editors to their personal tell-alls. Note that AFRU stasi will attempt to verify random details about your story.
But there's more. Check out these bussin stories:
