The National African-American Women's Conversation

Saturday

More Info

The National African-American Women's Movement LLC is proud to present: The National African-American Women's Conversation An Interacitive Conference for Social Change  The National Conversation Interactive Conference is a new disruptive model created by black women, led by black women, and focused on solutions that bring about positive social change for African-American Women. This event won't be full of fluff. Our goal is to fill the void we, as black women are often left with when it comes to mainstream female social advocacy. We'll focus on the "hard conversations" such as slave mentality, our health and body image, technology and innovation, love, sex and celebrating our beauty and culture, career, social justice and more. Mostly, this is about lifting each other up as black women and sparking change within the African-American diaspora. Participants will leave this event having learned at least one new practical skill or with information on a resource to help improve their lives, or the lives of others.  Event Agenda During the afternoon portion of the day (1pm-4pm), we will be tapping into the source of women in leadership as the fundamental, grassroots force for change. The NAAWM will bring together first time movement leaders, feature a combination of presenters, a conversational panel, workshop, and buffett dinner. Single admission includes all buffett dinner at the evening "Be Your Most Beautiful" dinner and entertainment. One person per ticket.  The evening portion (7pm-till). Speakers & Participants:  Dr. Ava Muhammad, Keynote Speaker Student Minister Sharrieff Muhammad Kesha Gibson-Carter Dr. Hanifa G.N.
