Brown Bodies: A Journey To Acceptance

When: Saturday, January 21st 2017

Where: Drama League Theater Center - Manhattan, NY

A dope conversation about women’s body image in the black community. With the help with our Workshop Warriors we talked, laughed, cried and drank mimosas because at one point of time we all struggled with our body image. We conjured up some black girl magic and worked through some negative stereotypes of body image that plagued women of color for centuries.
