Some special fans and followers braved the cold and showed us some love in Brooklyn. Our event, Talk Over Lemonade, was a celebration of all things BLACK GIRL MAGIC with Torri Oats at the helm of the conversation, we shared and bonded. We were even treated to poetry and of course some great drinks from Honest Tea!
Some Small Sips...
- We're not "old," we're "seasoned".
- Shirley Chisholm said, "If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair" Each woman at our event brought their own folding chair, but this is a potluck. In order for black arts, artists and business to thrive, we need to support them financially and through word-of-mouth."
- "No Lies Told Then is our collective story told through the eyes of one. It's that left turn that should have been right. The temporary distraction that becomes a lifelong regret. It's the moment when we all look in the mirror and ask ourselves, 'How did I get here?' and the choices we make."
