This systematic review is critical as it sheds light on a neglected area of research: the experiences of Black girls in leadership positions. While there is a growing body of literature on leadership and gender, race, and ethnicity, the experiences of Black girls in leadership roles have received less attention. This study addresses this gap in the literature by conducting a comprehensive analysis of research on Black girl leadership from 2000 to 2020.The problem that this systematic review address is the longstanding neglect of the experiences of Black girls in leadership positions. Despite the growing attention to issues of diversity and inclusion in leadership, the experiences of Black girls have been consistently overlooked and understudied.A systematic search was conducted in ERIC (Education Resources Information Center), Scopus and Google Scholar for articles published from 2000 to December 2020. The reference lists of the included studies were also searched to retrieve possible additional studies.The systematic review analyzed 9 articles and found six main themes in Black girl leadership: mentoring, oppression, intersectionality, underrepresentation, support networks, and the role of race. Each theme provided valuable insights into the experiences, challenges, and potentials of Black girls in leadership roles.The findings of this systematic review have important implications for researchers, policymakers, and educators working to promote equity and inclusion in leadership. Policymakers and educators can use this information to develop targeted interventions and programs to support Black girls in leadership positions.
