BlackFemaleProject celebrates Black women who thrive at work, and prepares the next generation of Black women for the realities of the workplace. We share lessons learned and words of wisdom from women who thrive in their careers and lives. As a result, in this post-affirmative action era, we interrupt the many impacts of structural racism through intergenerational conversations and community-building.

Using multimedia channels and live events, we bring women together to engage in sisterhood, sharing knowledge about the professional world across generation and industry, in order to inspire, heal, and grow. The reception has been monumental because Black women are ready to share, and considerate employers are ready to listen.

Final Installment of our Inaugural Story Collection

Though it’s bittersweet to be closing out our inaugural collection, we couldn’t be more excited about the note we get to close out on; we are so humbled and honored to share with you the wisdom, insight, and brilliance Mable Haddock has gained across the course of her 30+ year career in public broadcasting.
Born and raised in the segregated South and later making her home in Harlem, New York City, Mable has utilized her unique perspectives and voice to highlight and draw attention to the artistic voices and contributions of Black Americans from the Civil Rights era into the present.

The kickoff event for RESOUND: Black Female Voices - A Community Engagement Program for Black Girls with Kingston 11 Cuisine was a success. The synergies between women and young women was strong and immediate connections were made. Three young women were set up for internship interviews on the spot. A filmmaker and researcher, both currently students, are eager to lend their expertise to the program. We knew were were on to something special.

We aim to deepen the RESOUND program by journeying to the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and The Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama for 15 Black girls in 2020. Click here to learn how you can support the journey.

OUR FOOTPRINT FORWARD

The African American’s journey to “now” is remarkable with a vast cultural footprint. This year
denotes 400 years since the first documented enslaved Africans arrived in Jamestown, Virginia.
Just think about it. We have collectively survived 400 years of struggle to success, with
determination and dedication, and will continue our positive footprint into the future.
