Upcoming Seminar: “30 Years Later: The Crack Epidemic in the Black Community, The Aftermath, and Launching the Response”

On August 7th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, Because Black is Still Beautiful is hosting a seminar entitled “30 Years Later: The Crack Epidemic in the Black Community, The Aftermath, and Launching the Response.” It will focus specifically on the experiences of Black women, which is incredibly timely, given the recent ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬ and ‪#‎SayHerName‬ movements.

The seminar—led by the fabulous Marilyn Barnes—will give a detailed account of the crack epidemic from the perspective of Black women, assist service providers with developing tools and strategies for their organizations to address the repercussions of the epidemic, and create a transformational learning environment that will allow participants to self-reflect upon any actions or behaviors they make partake in that may affect our success in a negative or positive manner. We hope you are able to attend!
