Hi Amea, Ariyanna, and Janasia!

I really loved the idea behind this project. It focuses so well on helping the community on a topic that can be difficult to bring up with friends, family and peers. I'd love to see how this idea develops further using maybe some feedback from the community the features they'd want the most as a part of the app to help them with their struggles.

The Beautiful Black People app is truly an empowering way to connect with other black women who are dealing with the same issues associated with colorism. As a black woman who has often dealt with colorism, having a safe place to express myself would have left a lasting impression on my self-esteem and self-worth. I am genuinely inspired by the work you ladies are doing to support black women, Amazing job!!

Wow, this is a beautiful idea for an app, with beautiful user interface design to match! I love your choice of colors and the box grid style of design. It makes the interface look inviting and welcoming and celebratory! I also like how intuitive the UX design is. Very creative and thoughtful work! Keep it up!

An app connecting Black people and giving us a truly safe space to discuss the many challenges that we face because of colorism is such an impactful idea! The ability to talk to other people who are dealing with the same issues and could give specific advice on how to deal with the negative effects of colorism in a healthy way would have be a game changer for me. I often have to seek out resources like friends, podcasts, twitter threads etc. when I have a "bad day" or encounter microagressions so I would 100% use an app that centralizes all the resources available and provides a community. One thing I would like to see if maybe a filter for the kind of discussion I want to have for e.g. being able to filter for hair on the app if someone makes a comment about my braids at work.

I love this design it is similar top BLM and that's very important, some people of color get hate for being dark skin or brownskin maybe even lightskin
