On Monday in Atlanta, The Root hosted two of our best events so far: manCODE and Young, Fabulous and Female.

The night included an enjoyable cocktail hour, followed by two intriguing panels, and finished with an exciting after-party with a fantastic DJ.

The feedback from both panels was overwhelmingly positive, and the night overall was one of knowledge, networking and fun.
