Black American Princess (BAP) is a term that refers to black women of upper and upper middle class background, who possess (or are perceived to possess) a spoiled or materialistic attitude.

The BAP Handbook: The Official Guide to the Black American Princess (ISBN 978-0767905503) written by Kalyn Johnson, Tracey Lewis, Karla Lightfoot, and Ginger Wilson offers a behind-the-scenes look at BAP speech, style, and history. According to the guide, a Black American Princess is a pampered female of African American descent born to upper-middle- or upper-class families. Her life experiences give her a "sense of entitlement", and she is accustomed to the best and nothing less.

Stereotypically, young BAPs are often members of Jack and Jill, a social and civic organization for upper-middle-class African American youth. BAPs usually then go on to attend a "black Ivy" university such as Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University or Howard University where they pledge either Alpha Kappa Alpha or Delta Sigma Theta sorority. BAPs often later become members of The Girl Friends, Inc. or The Links, Incorporated, and summer in black enclaves of Sag Harbor, New York or Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts. Many BAPs have friends in a variety of organizations, include Sigma Pi Phi fraternity and the National Association of Guardsmen, Inc.
