There’s Going to Be a Fourth Powerpuff Girl, and Yes, We’re Freaking Out!

If you were a fan of the Powerpuff Girls in the ’90s, prepare to lose your sh*t over this: there’s going to be a fourth (!) Powerpuff Girl, and she’s voiced by a black woman. Cartoon Network announced the exciting news on Twitter, revealing that a first look of the new character will debut on Sept. 17 at 5:30 p.m. Shortly after, South African singer Toya Delazy confirmed that she’s voicing the new character, writing, “AND JUST LIKE THAT, I BECAME A POWERPUFF GIRL ????? Much love to my @cartoonnetwork for trusting me with this epic job ?❤️️#lifegoals”

Another Twitter user uploaded a photo of what may or may not be our first look the fourth Powerpuff Girl, and while it’s unconfirmed, the new character definitely looks promising. As an African-American who enjoyed watching the Powerpuff Girls as a kid, it’s definitely inspiring to see the Cartoon Network include diversity among one of its most beloved cartoon series. Sept. 17 can’t come quickly enough!

What Does It Mean To Be “Black Butterfly Beautiful”

The image of the butterfly has come to define the many expressions of the feminine black consciousness and for a good reason. The butterfly is the perfect articulation of the exquisite beauty of nature. Whether tiny or large, brightly colored or more subdued, the butterfly’s allure is undeniable. Each one displays its own unique patterns and hues, and no one species outshines any other.

Similarly, there is no one ideal image of a black woman -- each is gorgeous in her right. All African-Americans share a glorious history of struggle and perseverance that has funneled into the modern black renaissance. And, like the graceful butterfly, the awakened black woman exemplifies the dazzling beauty of that cultural evolution.
