(Washington, D.C. – May 21, 2020) The world stopped to listen to Angela Davis and Nikki Giovanni. Then, the King and Shabazz families united to give a master class on healing in a first-ever public conversation. Now, GirlTrek’s #DaughtersOF LIVE discussions continue for an evening of solidarity as we bring together the leaders of all four Black sororities for a groundbreaking conversation on the history of sisterhood.
The conversation, Unbreakable Bonds & Black Sisterhood, starts at 7 p.m. EST Friday, May 22nd, via FB LIVE.
The discussion is uniting the biggest, most historic institutions dedicated to Black sisterhood and
will feature Dr. Glenda Glover of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, International President; Beverly E. Smith of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., National President & CEO; Valerie Hollingsworth-Baker of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., International Centennial President and Deborah Catchings-Smith of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., International President.
“In order to know where we’re going we have to know where we have been. Because these are four of the greatest institutions in Black history. Because Vanessa and I personally want to learn from these four Black women and their founders. Because their advice and love will be critical as we build the largest health movement in history. Now is the time for Black unity and collective service,” said GirlTrek cofounder T. Morgan Dixon.
#DaughtersOf is a multifaceted-initiative to examine the immediate and critical importance of self-care and healing for Black women through the lens of their matrilineal traditions. It is a call for a mass rejuvenation through the sharing of our stories on hope, healing and happiness. Daughters Of will include a gorgeous feature film and videos where Black women call their mothers’ names and share everything from self-care secrets to recipes and stories of healing and thriving.
