Natalie Collier

Natalie Collier is the founder of The Lighthouse | Black Girl Projects. She developed the organization’s name after being inspired by Ella Baker, who said that if you shine a light, people will find their way. The Lighthouse | Black Girl Projects is a nonprofit organization in Jackson, Mississippi, that cultivates nonprescriptive spaces of solidarity for southern Black girls through programming and research.

It offers leadership development for Black girls and women. But it is important to note that the organization’s leadership development centers on building power, community and self-awareness. The Lighthouse | Black Girl Projects and its members also advocate improving Black maternal health, quality health care and reproductive justice. Collier has said that “Black girls who have access to time and space have power.” Learn more here.
