Today as we recognize Juneteenth , an annual holiday observing the end of slavery in the U.S. and marks the day (June 19, 1865) when news of emancipation reached people in the deepest parts of the former Confederacy in Galveston, Texas.
For centuries, black women have held the burden of making our own change. As black women in the wedding & event industry, sometimes it feels impossible to put our experience into words. Our emotions and desires are labeled as angry, and our experiences are often invalidated. Regardless of our talent, the bar is set so much higher for black women. As Black Event Professionals Who Matter we are creating change. We are the CHANGE we want to see. We are a MOVEMENT!
I came up with “Celebrating Black Women’s Excellence In Wedding & Event Industry” concept to showcase the powerful black women in Dallas-Fort Worth, TX. I reached out to vendors who aligned with the mission I wanted to accomplish: showcase all black women coming together to celebrate US!
This project reinforced the unbreakable sense of community that we as marginalized people can thrive off of. Black Excellence is going to be a theme around here. I feel that it always has been but we’re going to turn it up a notch. Cheers to Black Excellence !
Coming Soon… “The Visionary Creatives “
