I was born in the Congo
I walked to the fertile crescent and built
the sphinx
I designed a pyramid so tough that a star
that only glows every one hundred years falls
into the center giving divine perfect light
I am bad

I sat on the throne
drinking nectar with allah
I got hot and sent an ice age to Europe
to cool my thirst
My oldest daughter is Nefertiti
the tears from my birth pains
created the nile
I am a beautiful woman

Nikki Giovanni, "Ego Tripping"

Snowstorms caused us to cancel this special event, but the third time is the charm!

We welcome you to an intergenerational community conversation in honor of the women that have come before us, who we are today, and the ones yet to be born. Moderated by Monica Montgomery Nyathi, Strategic Director of Museum Hue join us for an evening of celebrating our wins, calling on our ancestral mothers, healing, and good ol' fashioned girl talk. 

Special guests also include Amber Finney and Jeannell Anthony of Brown Girl Alchemy Kristen McCallum of Safeword Society, and Chanel L. Porchia- Albert of Ancient Song Doula Services
