BlackFemaleProject

What started as an online Call for Submissions has grown into a vibrant community. In response, we’ve designed an eight-month engagement to support your participation and enhance the BlackFemaleProject experience.

BlackFemaleProject is a volunteer led and run organization. The ticket cost helps us pay for materials, refreshments and guest speaker honorarium.

We are seeking a Venue Sponsor for the June 18th event.


Additional Information about the Event and Host

Baayan Bakari has been a community teacher for 18 years. He was a classroom teacher for over six years at a small school in the heart of East Oakland. In 1996 he won an Echoing Green Fellowship to begin the Amafula Manhood Training curriculum, which later developed into the Khepera Curriculum. The Khepera Curriculum has been independently evaluated and found to improve self-esteem.

Light refreshments will be served.

*Help us continue to offer impactful affordable programming by supporting the Conversation Series financially. Rewarding sponsorship opportunities begin as low as $100.

The Conversation Series is a space where Black women and BlackFemaleProject Experts in Residence come together to talk about how to thrive professionally and navigate workplace environments. These opportunities provide Black with a space to share with and learn from one another.

The Workshop Series grew out of needs that were raised during 2015 conversations. During the 2016 workshop series, we will focus on building collective and individual awareness about cultural identity, leadership, and lifestyle with Baayan Bakari, Charmaine McClarie and Phyllis Bowie.

About Us
The BlackFemaleProject aims to prepare girls and young women for the realities of the work world by introducing stories of triumph and perseverance. Real women with satisfying careers discuss navigation strategies that help them maintain professional leadership. By studying how Black women have survived and thrived in a post-affirmative action era, we will reduce the impact of structural racism and empower a generation. www.BlackFemaleProject.org
