Little Sistahs in the Know, Inc.™

"Little Sistahs in the Know, Inc.™ is a non-profit organization that strives to build up African-American girls by providing a venue for them to learn about their culture and heritage; to openly express themselves and develop sisterly bonds; and to foster a positive self-image and promote high self-esteem. Groups of girls meet for monthly book discussions and come together to participate in a variety of cultural and social events." 
Little Sistahs in the Know, Inc was founded by Dawn Florence.  When she and her husband and three children moved to Chula Vista, CA., she realized that her daughter Ayanna who was the only African-American student in her class was missing out on certain cultural connections. So Little Sistas in the Know was created with the help of five other girls and their parents.  Today the organization has expanded to become a nationwide organization with chapters in California, Texas and New Jersey. To find a chapter near you or  start your own chapter visit, contact the or call (619) 591-8821.
