 As we embark on the 28 days focusing on the global contributions from the Black diaspora, we will share analysis on how monumental events throughout Black History have shaped and pushed our culture forward.

Happy International Women's Day! / March 8, 2019 by REELLAVENT


Ever since I could remember, my mother and grandmother were always there to teach me lessons I learned right away and later in life.  One of the reason’s I started REELLAVENT was because growing up, these women always made room for people to join us at the table.  They lovingly welcomed people in our home to talk, eat and feel safe.  Part of my approach to event planning borrows from the traditions and experiences gifted to me by two of the most beloved women in my life.  On this International Women’s Day I want to give honor to them as well as all women, who in the spirit of their ancestors, are guided by a fiercely righteous intuition.
