On Saturday, March 3rd, 2018, we will gather at Emancipation Park (3018 Emancipation Ave, Houston, TX 77004) to celebrate the enormous achievements of Black women in the United States and pay tribute to every Black girl and woman. Organized by Houston Rising and Black Lives Matter Houston, The March for Black Women program will feature artists, entrepreneurs, educators, thought leaders and activists.
We are asking all participants who will be tabling and marching with us to arrive at Emancipation Park no later than 9:30 AM. There will be signs and volunteers who will direct you to where you will be located. If you have any questions please contact Odus Evbagharu at email@example.com.
Organized by Houston Rising and Black Lives Matter Houston, The March for Black Women program will feature artists, entrepreneurs, educators, thought leaders and activists.
Special guests include Zerlina Maxwell, Director of Progressive Media for SiriusXM and former progressive media aide to Hillary Clinton; Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee; and Representative Shawn Thierry. We will also feature Dr. Roni Dean-Burren, a fierce advocate for eradicating systemic racism within the school system, and The Houston Press Rapper of the Year, Genesis Blu.
Black women have impacted the political, social, and economic arena for decades, especially over the last few years as the American political fabric has been tested yet again by an uptick in white supremacists. Our power- to sway elections, rebuild neighborhoods, and teach our children to become healthy, thriving adults- will be a key to the health and vibrancy of our nation and our world.
This event is Black woman centered but welcomes all allies in support of Black women.
