In February, I kicked off my inaugural Black Her Stories series at the Riveter. It was electric! What a beautiful crowd! I am so grateful for each and every person in that room. Thank you for bringing your energy!!
This conversation was a celebration and centering of the black female journey. A beautiful moment where we get to brag on the black women throughout history and in our communities who make magic happen.
How was race impacted you?
How has race impacted your behavior?
It's time to talk about your first time. Let’s talk about an experience that we can all share. This dinner series seeks to explore each guest’s first encounter with race and how that experience has shaped their behavior.
Come join an intimate conversation and learn about yourself.
What is the American dream to you?
On the eve of the November mid-term elections, I am thrilled to be kicking off the fall program of the dinner series. Participants will be exploring the American identity and unpacking questions that are top of mind in our culture.
Let's talk about what it means to be American Right right now.
How can we honor indigenous people in this art?
Who has the power in the representation of this marginalized group?
Let's try something new! This month I'm inviting guests to take part in the Double Exposure exhibit at the SAM. This collection challenges the power of perspective and raises the meaningful question:
How do we perceive ourselves and interpret other people?
Double Exposure offers a unique opportunity to explore the concept of identity through the lens of three different artists.
I am so excited to welcome our expert guest Dr. Jonathan Kanter to the table. I met Jonathan recently at a workshop hosted at the UW. He is the Director at the Center for the Science of Social Connection. We both have a desire to bring people together in order to build a more compassionate community.
Jonathan's research is focused on understanding micro-aggressions and it's impacts on marginalized groups. This work is essential to better understanding and addressing racism and prejudice.
This month, Nourish will be hosted at Capitol Hill’s locally owned – Marjorie. It is a warm and inviting space that is infused with thoughtful elements of family history and a Caribbean style. As you'll see when you get there - all are welcome and mingling is encouraged.
This month, the conversation will highlight the impact of unconscious bias and how it plays a role in our understanding of the “other.”
