Stories In My Backyard
The Voices of Black Womxn and Girls
Founded by Kyra Williams, SIMBY is a Philadelphia based art, education and social change nonprofit that provides online and in-person learning to Black womxn and girls through arts workshops and clubs, community events, and creative content. We are a Black womxn led initiative that believes in the power of Black storytelling, amplifying Black femxle voices and tapping into our imagination for liberation. Our goal is to create social awareness and action through art, discussions, and environments that tackle social justice issues impacting our livelihood. We’re molding creative social change agents of the future and uplifting the change makers of today. To extend our reach, we've officially partnered with the Philadelphia School District's TV Station (PSTV) to host workshops for Black womxn and girls ages 13-24.
