When ‘reading the news’ turns into click after click about violence, racism, sexism, and all the other isms – you just need a break. Here are six Instagram accounts to inspire a smile or two with their abundance of #BlackBoyJoy and #BlackGirlMagic.

Professor and ethnographer Dr. Yaba Blay is the creator of Professional Black Girl. It is a multi-platform media project that highlights the awesomeness of the #BlackGirlMagic women exude everyday. The IG feed is full of everything from elaborate hairstyles to dance routines to fun flashback photos from the 90s, complete with bamboo earrings (at least two pair). It’s not about Black women who are professionals; the Professional Black Girl project is about Black women being themselves so ferociously that it is on a professional level.
