What makes you fabulous? Nearly 200 women came out on Jan. 13 to The Root's Young, Fabulous and Female event in Philadelphia to explore that question and network over cocktails. Sponsored by Lincoln and held at the African American Museum in Philadelphia, the evening centered around a panel moderated by journalist and broadcast personality Jacque Reid (Tom Joyner Morning Show), who was joined by news anchor Sheinelle Jones (Fox 29), conductor Jeri Lynne Johnson (Black Pearl Orchestra), University of Pennsylvania professor Salamishah Tillet, Ph.D., and The Root Deputy Editor Sheryl Huggins Salomon. See what the panelists and guests had to say about the insights they shared.
