An ode to black womanhood
Ain’t no love like the love of our girls. The love that black women can find within our sisterhood is unparalleled and forever necessary.
If you’re blessed to have a couple of solid black female friends in your corner, you know just how much of a support system they can be. We laugh together, we cry together, and we spill tea together. We fuss, we fight, we smile, and most importantly, we love.
All in all, black sisterhood is a force. While we continue to push for more representation in the media, fictional or otherwise, there have still been some iconic black female friendships that cannot go unnoticed. Here are 15 that remind us why ain’t no love like the love of our girls.
1. Gina and Pam
The only thing that makes this duo more iconic is the fact that Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold are best friends in real life. After decades of friendship, in the words of Tisha, they’re “still here.”
2. Oprah and Gayle
Oprah and Gayle are the OG besties. Oprah isn’t afraid to let Gayle know when she’s ashy, and the two always have each other’s backs.
