We charge a fee for many of our publicly hosted programs. No individual is turned away from any of our our programs due to a lack of funds. People under 25 are not expected to contribute financially. We ask those who are able to pay full price or more for our programs to do. This helps keep our programs financially accessible to all, regardless of income. Not sure if you should pay less, more, or nothing? View our Sliding Scale document to find an amount that feels appropriate to you.

Black Beauty

August 18, 2019 @ 2:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Free

Facilitated by Mercedes Mack and Zymora Davinchi.

This program hopes to help those of the African diaspora understand the history of black beauty, and how these beauty standards have evolved over time in the hands of colonization, slavery, and Jim Crow. More importantly, it aims to encourage them to embrace their beauty and be proud of being black. This program was designed by and for people of African descent.
