“Come enjoy an evening of honoring Black Women in Politics & Media“
In major walks of life, black women have been thriving and achieving greatness. Yet, something has always stuck out as a major concern, underrepresentation. This clause has affected the contributions of every capable black women because of the little opportunity.
Let’s take a look at the political sector. In 2020, Kamala Harris broke barriers by becoming the first person of color and the first person of South Asian descent to be elected to a federal position in the United States.
However, there was a cost to the Senate’s diversity with her election. Due to Harris’s resignation, there are now no Black women sitting as senators or representatives from California.
Several other areas that can make use of the contribution of a black woman too have been hoarded because of the societal construct. This brought about the program, Dope Black Girls Brunch. For 5 years, Dope Black Girls have been showing tremendous support to black women in politics, advocacy, and media.
DBGB started as a space for Black women to have a community that supports, uplifts and celebrates everything about them both as a person, their lifestyle and professional endeavors. Since its inception, many black women have been touched by the program and there are plans of extending the program to other cities; every black women deserves to experience a community that supports them.
This year’s program will be held on August 28 at Washington D.C’s Hamilton Restaurant. It is a program that will be very impactful and empowering. It will be anchored by the remarkable Dr. Wendy Osefo.
This year’s event will be graced by strong black women like Cathy Hughes, Founder and Chairperson of Urban One, Inc.; Adjoa B. Asamoah, Co-Creator of CROWN Coalition; Chelsea Miller, Co-Founder of Freedom March NYC and Commentator for Now This News, Maya RockeyMoore Cummings,PH.D, Founder/President/CEO of Global Policy Solutions, LLC, among others, for their commitment and impact in their respective industries.
Black Girls Vote and Color Vision will be hosting two community events leading up to the highly anticipated DGB themed Fireside Chat with Past Dope Black Girl Honorees. The Black Girls Vote (BGV) is a nonpartisan group working to encourage Black women, especially those between the ages of 18 and 25, to exercise their right to vote and make their voices heard. Their goal is to encourage more Black women to get involved in politics so that they may help their communities and families.
In addition, Mia Davis founded the Color Vision organization in 2017 intending to promote gender equality in the creative industry. The mission of the organization is to help women of color succeed in the workforce, in business, and higher education by providing them with training, mentorship, and financial aid. Color Vision and Black Girls Vote are also leading other local community projects (voting registration awareness, career opportunities for Black women, and more).
This year’s event is sponsored by Belvedere and Buzzfeed Inc. Every black woman that will be attending this event should prepare for so many networking opportunities. Also, there are side attractions like a Belvedere open bar, gift bags full of remarkable Black-owned products, and raffle tickets to indulge in a gift basket full of self-care items.
Before the main event on August 28th, you can join Color Vision and Black Girls Vote on August 24 at 6:30 p.m. EST for a live, online fireside chat featuring some of this year’s Dope Black Girl Honorees. At this gathering, there will be talk about the current state of politics, celebrate the success of Dope Black Girls, and analyze the far-reaching effects of this movement.
