Also to search for the budding talents and raise fund and awareness with the chosen charity Glowing Future. (A charity that caters for women affected by Domestic violence).
This event has been designed to get every woman of colour in every corner of the world involved in various ways, believing together, we can achieve much. Women from Africa, Asia, Caribbean , USA and every part of the world have been involved in this huge event.
As part of My Black woman’s quest to making sure that women of colour take their place in global branding, we have staged this grand lavish event to celebrate the woman under one roof making sure they reach a wider audience and add value to what they do. This platform will help all participant and the entire womanhood to have the opportunity to express themselves how they want to. This initiative will go a long way to helping women empower themselves, network, find their feet and make the change we all crave.
The highlight of this great and lavish event are – recognition of honour, trade exhibition, fashion show, beauty contest , music performances, poetry and spoken word performances and seminar. Women have been asked to put a touch of purple to their outfits, costumes, designs and wears for the day to signify power, dignity and strength.
On the honour list, women have chosen the 5 most outstanding women of colour who we think have brought dignity and integrity for the us. They are – Maya Angelou, Michelle Obama, legendary singer Onyeka Onwenu , Baroness Doreen Lawrence, Oprah Winfrey and Zimbabwean Betty Makoni. These women do not need to be introduced. Their works speak for them. (Just google the names).
We are also contacting our ambassadors from every nation and urge women to appoint, recommend or refer any worthy woman to represent them in their region or country. Everyone has a stake in making the woman of colour proud.
