On day 1, the cast of Black Girl Magic flew into Cincinnati Ohio for the first day of filming. The women came from St. Louis, Florida, Atlanta, Dayton, Kentucky and Cincinnati. My goal was to bring different women together for a bonding session. One of the stigmas that surround black women is that we do not like each other. This was a myth that I set out to dispel. I was very successful because, by the end of the night, you could not tell that they were strangers at all. I decided to have an ice breaker activity. We met at Unique Aromas in Dayton Ohio, owned by Sarah Muse. The cast created scent infused shea butter. This gave them the opportunity to really get to know each other and have fun.
