They’re All the Same Girl is yet another milestone in the awesome work of Kelly Fair and Polished Pebbles. As an advocate for fathers and families, the nation is in desperate need of tools that help in building safe and productive environments for our youth.The combinational format of both lessons learned and solutions in this book will make this one of the most sought after and impactful tools for the mentorship movement.

They’re All The Same Girl is required reading for anyone who desires to impact a girl’s life through mentoring. This handbook is a required tool to help dismantle preconceived notions about who our girls are and what they need. Kelly makes it plain with TATSG, and shares how every girl simply needs adults who care and show up as our very best selves in order to truly be of service to our girls and the global girl empowerment movement. TATSG is a mentor’s bible!

Kelly Fair has captured the true essence and power of being a mentor. While my “Report on the Status of Black Women and Girls(r)” gives the state of Black female lives in America, this guide to mentoring provides the heart needed to make those lives a little better each day. Girls gain from the guidance of a mentor as much as mentors gain from tithing their talents and time. This book demonstrates how easy it is to do it. And we must do it.

Having hailed from the South Side of Chicago, I have a deep affinity, as Kelly Fair does for the exceptionalism of Black girl magic. “They’re All the Same Girl” implores, compels and demands with boldness the audacity for the world to activate our responsibility to the “other side of the crisis” with research driven, best practices and mother wit, sprinkled and kindled with deliberate care. The wisdom expressed through TATSG will assist educators, researchers, clergy and communities to assist in propelling Black girls to soar and assume their greatness, unapologetically.

With They’re All The Same Girl Kelly Fair delivers turn-key tactics and shares insight on successfully garnering support from volunteers, schools, civic and corporate partners.  The book offers personal testimonies from volunteers, program staff and candid community conversations that will prepare aspiring social entrepreneurs, and your organization, to build a generation of girls on the path to personal and professional success!
