Real Beauty Moment: Disney Princesses Don’t Tell Our Story

[I am a part of]  Your Queens. We are the first entertainment costume company that teaches children and adults about African kings and queens through story telling, song and dance.

We are available for birthday parties. We do presentations at counseling centers, we’re here to teach you that there’s nothing wrong with Disney Princesses, but we came from kings and queens, not slavery, and it’s time to take our throne back.
