Loving the Skin We’re In

May 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This conversation is long overdue and much needed in the NWI Community.
 
Colonialism in African countries forced nations and people against each other. As a result, we are dealing with unspoken tensions between each other. Join the May Week committee as we explore the unspoken tension between Africans and African-Americans from a diverse panel made up from African natives.
 
Open and honest discussion led by D-S-T Member Abbey Durojaye, a Nigerian native and now living in Chicagoland. Light refreshments will be served until exhausted. We are asking you to wear your favorite African garb to pay homage to the motherland.
 
FREE and open to the public!
 
Sponsored by the Gary Alumnae Chapter’s International Awareness Committee.
