“Tabitha Brown is what the world needs right now, which is love, compassion and inspiration. At a time like this, her words of encouragement are so impactful, but especially for Black women who can certainly relate to her, her family and her journey. We wanted to bring someone in who represents Black women on an international level with class and integrity. What’s more, we know she has a story that will blow our minds. She will inspire all of us to do better and be better, says The Black Girl Social Club founder, Carmen Jones.”
The Black Girl Social Club was created as a safe space for Black women, and changed the narrative about how Black women interact with one another. The organization is a modern day social club determined to bring back the art of face to face communication, away from our phones, and off of the internet. They’re tackling mental, physical, and emotional health as a community, while building amazing relationships. The BGSC is looking to fill a void for Black women in cities worldwide. The mission is really quite simple to impact the lives of Black women through social interaction, so that they might be happy, healthy and whole.
“Our guests, who are coming from all around the world, by the way, can expect connection, self-reflection, self-development, and Black girl joy. We have vendors, esteemed panelists, and fabulous cocktail parties planned. We want our guests to feel at home, and know that they’ve found a sisterhood in BGSC. They can expect to leave better than they came, said Carmen Jones.”
The Black Girl Social Club is open to the public and tickets can be purchased here. The conference will kick off on Friday, August 19 with a kick off party at Hyatt Regency . The Conference will take place on Saturday, August 20 and will feature a number of panels/workshops, and breakout sessions.
“This year, we wanted to open the conference up to non-members in an effort to reach more women who align with our mission and vision. Our organization can’t be what we want it to be without the right women here to take up space, engage, and grow with us. It’s not about quantity for us, but quality. We want women who are invested. So we felt like this was the perfect time, in a city where we have some of the highest demand, to engage the community of amazing, brilliant and outgoing Black women that we know exists. We’re looking forward to meeting each and every one of them, and hopefully welcoming them into the sisterhood, said Carmen Jones.”
The Black Girl Social Club started with a Girls’ night. A group of 12 women came together to talk, eat, drink, and close out the year with affirmations right before New Year’s Eve 2019. After a night of healing, guided meditation, laughing, crying, and lots of new connections made, Carmen realized this was something women needed-more specifically Black women. They needed a space to feel seen, be heard, and not feel judged. They needed healing and personal development, through solid relationships and social activities. She wanted to recreate the feeling she felt that day, over and over again. That’s when The Black Girl Social Club was born. Follow on @TheBlackGirlSocialClub here.
