Black women are powerful, beautiful and intelligent, among many other incredible words I can insert into this sentence. I’m not just saying that because I’m a Black woman, but because I’ve seen this with my own eyes and history hasn’t shown me otherwise.
So, I was elated to hear another Black woman, Mutale Nkonde, wanted to celebrate our awesomeness. She created the Year of the Black Woman, a series of 365 in-person and online events focused on Black and Latina wealth creation. I was honored when she asked me to be apart of Year of the Black Woman.
In addition to posting informative content on our buying power and wealth creation, events and the like, this initiative is designed to improve the wealth-gender gap.
Throughout the year, you’ll see me writing about various topics that resonate with the Afro-Latino community in relation to wealth creation and empowerment. Take a look at the video below for more information on #YroftheBlkWoman :
