Join us for a night of celebration empowerment, healing and self-actualization through the Arts of photography, dance, and fashion, honoring the journey and the complex roles Black woman play in our community and the world at large.
We will be honoring several women who are positive role models and inspirations to their community. These women have been chosen so that we may celebrate their resilience, perseverance and commitment to speaking the truth; and for being empowering warriors for justice, healing, light and love.
Come out to celebrate those who claim, reclaim and/or disrupt traditional constructs of black femininity in its many forms. The images captured in this photography exhibit marks an occasion where black women/femmes were seen, counted, loved and valued. This in and of itself is a political act.
