Jamila Woods celebrates our #BlackGirlMagic in the video for her latest single "Blk Girl Soldier." We've been patiently waiting for a visual since the song dropped at the beginning of the year.

Woods told For Harriet the idea for the song came to her last year. Her aim is to uplift "Black women who seem to be going through really hard times."

She translated the anger and frustration she felt after hundreds of girls were abducted by Boko Haram in Nigeria and Rekia Boyd's killer was set free into an anthem that would empower and affirm sisters. With shout outs to Rosa Parks, Ella Baker, Audre Lorde, Angela Davis, and Sojourner Truth, Ms. Woods is representing beautifully.
