Join The Root for Young, Fabulous and Female in Dallas to Break Some Rules and Take Some Cards

We love parties at The Root. Celebrating us as black people has become a feel-good embrace of self-love that stands up against the issues we face today. And when said party serves a greater purpose than clinking glasses and shaking (you knew where I was going), it becomes mandatory to attend.

The Root’s Young, Fabulous and Female event, sponsored by Toyota, is a networking and panel party that allows for women who move and shake with grace and style to meet up for an unforgettable night that leads to a lasting bond. Our YFF events have legs and have traveled across the U.S., from Atlanta to Los Angeles, Philadelphia to New Orleans; we love being able to share these moments with every woman.

This time we’re coming to Dallas, baby! Everything’s bigger in Texas, and this old adage also applies to our event. We’re going to be talking about tearing down walls and blazing new trails with a panel discussion that will address how you can change your life for the better and will turn your preconceived notions on their head.

Our esteemed panelists include #SmartBrownGirl Jouelzy, who uses her voice in videos and writing to encourage women of color to define their own success stories; intellectual property attorney Christa Brown-Sanford; ordained itinerant elder and multihyphenate CEO Vashti-Jasmine Saint-Jean; and company director of diversity Kamecia Lambert, and each of them shares the type of success you’d want to take out a notepad for.

On top of all of that fabulousness, this party is a party, so there are cocktails and networking to boot. It’s the type of night you want to experience, so we’re inviting you to come out, Dallas!

RVSP here and we’ll see you Thursday, Aug. 10!

Pretty. Witty. Girly. Worldly. One who likes to party, but comes home early. I got stories to tell. Prince (yes, that Prince) called me excellence. Achievement unlocked.

Thotline Bling: black girl supremacy

God. I am so not a “networker” or extrovert. But I plan to be there. I guess I’ll have to remember to bring business cards.
