Join us to explore how Black women have used the creative arts to dismantle racism, sexism, and various forms of oppression and how all women can collaborate, support, and develop a more empowered narrative of Black women for the future. We will be fostering a safe environment to invite and provoke stimulating and critical conversations about the intersectionality of being a woman of color in the form of a mixer where food and fun will be provided.
