IN CELEBRATION OF WOMEN

Together, we are amazing!


“The entire world knows what you know, and that is, black girls rock!” Clinton proclaimed. She added that Black women are change makers, path makers and ground shakers, yet there are still a lot of barriers holding back African Americans and Black women in particular. This was at the 10th Annual Black Girls Rock Award that was aired last Tuesday.

THE REAL CHANGE MAKERS


.. WE ARE NOT ALL HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES, YOU KNOW!

Breaking down these barriers and creating a level playing field for black women is the reason why Black Pumps was founded. It’s time we start breaking the barriers and having those difficult discussions. It will start with us. We also cannot do this alone, we need our men and yes, we need non blacks to make this happen. We need companies to make conscious and strategic decisions in creating opportunities and being truly inclusive.

The obvious question is, what are we doing to create this change? What are we doing to make sure that our children play on a level field, and that opportunities are not just provided to whites only? There is always a lot of talk and a lot of discussion about this disparity, especially on the celebrity level, which we all got a glimpse of from the past years Oscars celebration, in Hollywood.

On May 7, 2016, Black Pumps will be having its 3rd Annual Mother – Daughter Brunch, a true celebration of all girls and women. Take time to reflect on the women that have made a difference in your life. Take time to thank the women in your life and let them know how they have impacted your life. Let them know that they indeed ROCK!

I will close this by quoting and agreeing with Rihanna that “ALL GIRLS ROCK.. BLACK GIRLS JUST ROCK ON ANOTHER LEVEL."
