Independent R&B artist Lovely Hoffman releases the video for “My Black Is Beautiful,” a song to improve the self-esteem of young girls of color.
In the visual, Hoffman encourages young black girls to embrace their skin color, body shapes, facial features, and natural hair. “There’s one thing you should remember / Your love of self is more precious than anything else,” she sings on the bridge.
