Image: The Black Girlhood Altar. In the center of the image is a mirror in which the author takes a selfie. Behind the mirror is a dark blue wallpaper with recurring images of a little brown square that says “FUNERAL,” a set of golden hoop earrings, a Black Barbie in a pink box, and other motifs. In front of the mirror is a bowl, a candle, blue flowers, white roses, and other objects. To the left and right of the mirror are shelves with flowers, books, and other objects.
