Event Description

Celebrate the joys of Black girlhood with featured poets, speakers, and presenters.

For the last decade, the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality has worked to achieve race and gender equity in the lives of Black girls through its Initiative on Gender Justice and Opportunity. The program has generated groundbreaking research, reports, and events on the challenges and jubilations of Black girlhood.

In recognition of the center’s 10th anniversary and contributions to the field, we invite you to an evening uplifting Black girls’ voices in celebration of the joys of Black girlhood. Join us for an evening featuring Marley Dias, founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, a spoken word performance by the Initiative’s Youth Storyteller in Residence and three-time National Speech & Debate champion, Logan Green, and a conversation with the trailblazing Black artist Scheherazade Tillet.

This program is available for free to the public, but if you would like to support the museum, please make a $10 donation. The recording of the program will available on the museum’s YouTube page a week after the program’s conclusion.

Live transcriptions will be provided during this virtual program. To request additional access services, please email freshtalk@nmwa.org. Four weeks’ notice is appreciated but not required.

This Cultural Capital program is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change initiative in partnership with the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality.
