2017 #CiteASista Black Women's Empowerment Dinner & Networking Event
Fri, October 6, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
Cite A Sista is a lifestyle and a movement. #CiteASista began as the brainchild of two University doctoral students as a solution to the insidious nature of whiteness and white supremacy in education, media, and pop culture. What originally began as once monthly twitter chats has morphed into a community of Black women activists, professionals, and much more, who come together each month to discuss a wide array of topics and events.
This networking dinner is designed to bring together Black women (and their accomplices) from all walks of life to network, support, and encourage Black women. Given the intimate nature of this event and an exciting line-up of speakers, this must-attend for Black women and girls of all ages is expected to sell out quickly! Discounts are available with proof of financial hardship!
Individuals unable to attend this event are encouraged to show their support through donations so that we may reserve spaces for Black women with financial hardships.
