What we're about


Welcome to Black Girls United!

We are:
- the LARGEST social group for ONLY Black Women on the planet
- doing fun things in the largest city on the planet
- with our members being some of the most accomplished and impactful Black Women on the planet!

Follow our IG pages @blackgirlsunitedNYC and @melanintravelerz

Join us if you are ready to:
- develop lasting friendships with other African American / Caribbean American / Gobal Melanin Godesses
- mix & mingle in NYC and globally
- give back to your community in service and/or in kind
- travel to awesome destinations with other likeminded women

The sole purpose of this group is to build friendships, one curated event at a time. Be it something as simple as brunch or as extensive as a week long expedition in Europe. There is something for everyone, every time. We strive to empower, embrace and uplift each other, all while having fun.

This is a group where black women support one another and get together to experience our cultures, indulge in other cultures and experience new things both in and out of NYC.  We value open minds, respectful interaction but most of all - POSITIVE ENERGY.   Cheers to you joining our social family!

*~*~*~*MEETUP GOLDEN RULES*~*~*~* 

#1 To Join Us: We need you to have a CURRENT HEADSHOT, aka SELFIE/FACE VISIBLE profile picture of YOURSELF. Submissions with no pictures, pictures of an animal, an object, background scenery, darkened sunglasses, obscuring filters, or photo where your face isn't completely or clearly visible will not be approved. There are no exceptions to this requirement.

#2 No Show Policy: If you RSVPd YES to an event, please honor that YES by actually showing up. If you are unable to make it to a scheduled event, thus keeping you from joining us, please be considerate to your event host and fellow members by updating your rsvp at least 1 day before the event is scheduled to start. 

#3 DISCLAIMERS - ZERO TOLERANCE -  BGU is 100% committed to harmonious Sisterhood Experiences based on Universal Principles while gathered. The organizer has ZERO tolerance for Negative Attitudes, Profanity, Drunkenness, Drama, Gossipers, Cattiness, Disruptors, Smoking and Rudeness to anyone.  This group is NOT for divisive women, petty women, women who can't adhere to simple ground rules on respect, women who have a problem being on time, women who are "wrong and strong", women who don't know how to check their diva attitudes at the door. In essence, if you are short-tempered, sharp tongued, impatient, mean, disrespectful, this IS NOT the group for you. Anyone who exhibits these qualities will be removed from the group, without hesitation.

When we get together, we do so to network, to laugh, to unwind, to build, uplift and set a foundation for new friendships.  If this sounds like your kind of party, we look forward to having you in our BGU family.
