Are You Young, Fabulous and Female in Philly?

Join The Root for an evening of conversation and cocktails on Jan. 13, moderated by Jacque Reid.

The latest stop in The Root’s Young, Fabulous and Female series of events is Philadelphia, and we’re pleased to announce that on-air personality and journalist Jacque Reid (Tom Joyner Morning Show, Let’s Talk About Pep) will be moderating the discussion!

Join The Root for an evening of conversation and cocktails, sponsored by Lincoln, next Thursday, Jan. 13, at the African American Museum in Philadelphia. Among the growing list of confirmed panelists are Fox 29’s Good Day anchor Sheinelle Jones Ojeh, Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra director Jeri Lynne Johnson, and University of Pennsylvania professor and writer Dr. Salamishah Tillett. It promises to be a great evening of networking and thought-provoking conversation focused on the career and life challenges facing young black women.

Please RSVP here if you’d like to join us.

The particulars:

Where will the next crop of black female pacesetters and game changers come from, and how will they make a difference in the world? Will their success help change popular images and stereotypes of black women? Are they visible-enough role models for black girls? What must they — and we — do to increase the ranks of the young, fabulous and female within our community? The Root (a black news and opinion website owned by the Washington Post Co.) presents a moderated discussion of these questions, featuring some of our community’s young, fabulous and female achievers. They will answer these questions, as well as those posed by The Root’s audience.
