Black Conversations – Round Table on Black History Month
Sat 23 Feb, noon – 7pm @ PHI Centre
Black Conversations is a conference day highlighting the different realities of black women.
Through conferences and personal accounts, Black Conversations will allow people to discover the stories of inspiring women who, each in their own way, have highlighted the variety within the Black female experience. Award-winning playwright, actress and producer Trey Anthony will be special guest for the evening.
