About this Event

“Only the black woman can say when and where I enter…”

Enter with us into an interactive discussion with authors who give life to the voice of Black women in their books. Stories of love, betrayal, struggles, and success; from children’s books to self-help, and fiction to romance, Black women have a voice in it all.

Moderated by leading actress T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh (In Living Color/Cosby/That's So Raven) who has portrayed many roles on the stage and screen, and by celebrity guest Korin Williams (Uncle Buck/Roots/Truth Be Told) who has produced film and television featuring strong black leads--this afternoon event will be empowering, informative, and definitely one for the books!
