Join The Root for a panel discussion and cocktail reception on June 30 in NYC about black women who are young, fabulous and changing the world. It's the latest event in our popular Young, Fabulous and Female event series.
We have a stellar lineup of successful and talented panelists confirmed for our evening at the Alvin Ailey Theater: our moderator Jacque Reid, co-host of KISS-FM's The D.L. Hughley Morning Show and cast member of Let's Talk About Pep; Tracey Ferguson, editor-in-chief of Jones Magazine and star of Centric TV's reality show, Keeping Up with the Joneses; Lois Samuels, model and fashion designer; Edwina Findley, actress (Tremé); Donna Byrd, publisher of The Root; Raina Kelley, Newsweek staff writer; and Sharon Epperson, CNBC's senior energy and personal finance correspondent.
It's 2010, and we have black women in the East Wing of the White House, at the Cabinet level, on the Forbes list of billionaires and at the head of a Fortune 500 company. Where will the next crop of black female pace setters and game changers come from, and how will they make a difference in the world? Join us in posing these questions to a panel of some of our community's young, fabulous and female achievers. Mingle afterward over cocktails in the posh surroundings of the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater.
The Young, Fabulous and Female series is sponsored by Pepsi and PepsiWeInspire.com. Details about the event are below. To see all the fun we had during our last Young, Fabulous and Female evening on April 22 in Washington, D.C., go here.
