On Sunday, June 29th, we ended our third season of networking meetups by hosting our first guest speaker, Ashley M. Coleman of WriteLaughDream.com and creator of the Bold, Brown, & Beautiful series, at Neely's BBQ Parlor (1125 1st Ave). The topic was "When Will We Be Enough?" and Ashley led a lively discussion on everything from the controversy surrounding Blue Ivy's hair, black women's portrayal on both reality shows, scripted series, and music videos, side jawn (side chick) culture, and prejudice within our own communities regarding skin complexion.
At the conclusion of the event, Ashley posed this question to everyone at the table "Why are you enough?"
"I'm good enough because I said so." said Toosdhi Perry of Philadelphia, PA.
It was a very enlightening afternoon and we would just like to thank Ashley for joining us in spreading her message to educate and uplift women's self esteem and confidence.
To find out more about Ashley please visit www.writelaughdream.com . Her book Dear Love: A Love Letter to You is now available.
Thank you to all who came out!
