Sisterhood. Support. Self-care.

Create authentic friendships, swap stories, experiences, and ideas around our shared mission of love, inspiration, and acceptance with Beautiful Brown Girl(friend)s locally and globally today!



Christina Duren founded the Beautiful Brown Girls Brunch Club in March of 2010.

Over the last 11 years, Beautiful Brown Girls™ has blossomed into so much more than a brunch club. It is a community made up of 29 chapters. Each one is a sister circle.

Christina believes that in order to build a strong nation, that’s what we need – sister circles and other strong communities.

Beautiful Brown Girls is proof of what can happen when you find your people. Not only can you bond over a delicious meal, but you can also become an agent for change in your community.
