The creator of For Brown Girls touched the lives of many women with her message of self-love and empowerment, but Karyn's close friend, Yumnah Najah, wants to offer some clarity on her life and legacy.
In this video blog, Yumnah says assumptions that Karyn's suicide was the result of insecurity about her appearance are false. According to Yumnah, Karyn had been having a difficult time dealing with the recent death of her mother.
