A movement to empower young black girls is gaining momentum, according to ABC News, thanks to Black Girls Cheer.

Sharita Richardson was and still is fond of cheerleading, a lifelong passion. The woman with roots in North Carolina started cheerleading in middle school. As a mother, she raised three daughters who cheered competitively. In 2014, Richardson took a different perspective of cheerleading as a doctoral student.

“Someone said the best thing to do your dissertation on is something you know a lot about, and I was kind of lost because I didn’t really know a lot about anything besides cheerleading. I’ve been doing this for 15 years,” Richardson told Good Morning America.
