“You’re not an African because you’re born in Africa. You’re an African because Africa is born in you. It’s in your genes…. your DNA… your entire biological make up. Whether you like it or not, that’s the way it is…” ~ Marimba Ani

MLNNNYC

MLNNNYC (Melanin NYC) is a group of Black women whose goal is to uplift and represent the Black woman in a positive light that is not shown in media. They have discussions on what is going on in our culture and how to help or live in current times. They provide relationship advice; hair skin, and nail tips; diet and nutrition; and more.

“We just want to show the world that we are more than what you see on reality TV.”
