The Panel Discussion: "The Art of Healing" Inspired by former South Orange resident, Eva Woolridge's photo series "The Size of a Grapefruit," currently installed at the South Orange Performing Arts Center, The Art of Healing seeks to offer an inclusive, safe, and engaging space to examine and give voice to the disparities, medical negligence, and micro-aggressions that exist for Black Women in their reproductive experiences that are often left unspoken and unaddressed.
The Virtual Vendor Marketplace - As you are aware we all have suffered some great losses during COVID 19. Financial loss to our businesses has been the biggest challenge and figuring out ways to bounce back from the slow down of business. In an effort to support one of the goals of the event are to celebrate and support Entrepreneurs of color.
