Death of Karyn Washington

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Karyn Washington, founder of the “For Brown Girls” website, has died at age 22.  For those who aren’t familiar with it, the purpose of the website is “to celebrate the beauty of dark skin while combating colorism and promoting self love.”

Reporters at The Root (here) and Madame Noire (here) are describing Ms. Washington’s death as an alleged suicide.

May her memory be a blessing.
