The Black Girl Convention was an experience like no other. To be around a group of powerful, beautiful, supporting women was a dream. So often I go to conventions where the environment is not welcoming. it was great to be around women who are genuine and eager to teach and learn with enthusiasm.
This platform amplifies the voices of Black women, facilitates connection to support one another and celebrates the strides we are making. It was an honour to be a speaker on the Black Girl Convention stage and share the lessons that empowered me with others.
Performing at Bristol’s first Black Girl Convention was a huge honour. To be in the room with great, Black, female minds of all ages was electric. We all knew something special was growing in the sisterhood.
The [event] spoke to the idea that, no matter what stage in life, black women have a unifying experience and sentiment that draws them together.
