Black Girl in Maine
Updated: Jun 26
In her words: "Black Girl in Maine, also known as BGIM for those who want to keep their typing-related finger stress down, is a Chicago-born, Chicago-raised chick by the name of Shay Stewart-Bouley who was forcibly relocated to Maine in 2002." BGIM is an incredible resource if you're looking to learn in-depth about the Black experience in Maine (hint, you should look to learn in-depth about the Black experience in Maine!). You can find BGIM on Instagram, Facebook, and you can read her blog. AREA also encourage you, as always, to support her work (or as she says, "the musings") through a one-time tip or recurring donation.
