The Power of #blackgirlmagic: Inspiring Moments from Blavity’s 21Ninety #Summit21
I just wrapped up an incredible weekend in Atlanta at Blavity’s 21 Ninety Summit 21, a gathering of 1,200 creative women of color from around the world looking to change the world and make a difference in their industry.
The 2-day conference featured an amazing line up of keynote speakers and intimate chats from women who are disrupting their industries and transforming the world. The tweets and grams don’t lie this weekend was filled with a lot of #blackgirlmagic.
But the takeaways are the gems that dropped this weekend by the keynote speakers and breakout session panelists including Robin Thede, Ashley Blaine Featherson, Morgan DeBaun, Kela Walker, Karen Civil, Franchesha Ramsey, Angela Rye, Food Heaven Show. They shared their truths to a room full of bloggers, creatives, and business women. We had real and authentic conversations about discovering your purpose over passion, peeling back from the hustle and grind, finding your tribe, the power of the black woman, what we could do if we bounded together as a community, how to build a scalable solid business plan, investing in yourself, confidence, the rocky journey to success, and so much more.
Here are some of my favorite gems from this years Summit 21 that resonated with me.
