The Power of Cultural Identity

Baayan Bakari

RSVP here.

What started as an online Call for Submissions has grown into a vibrant community. In response, we’ve designed an eight-month engagement to support your participation and enhance the BlackFemaleProject experience.

BlackFemaleProject is a volunteer led and run organization. The ticket cost helps us pay for materials, refreshments and guest speaker honorarium. We are seeking a Venue Sponsor
 for the June 18th event.

About the event
The Conversation Series is a space where Black women and BlackFemaleProject Experts in Residence come together to talk about how to thrive professionally and navigate workplace environments. These opportunities provide Black women with a space to learn from and share with one another.

The Workshop Series grew out of needs that were raised during 2015 conversations. During the 2016 workshop series, we will focus on building collective and individual awareness about identity, leadership and lifestyle with Baayan BakariCharmaine McClarie and Phyllis Bowie.

On June 18th, 2016 Expert in Residence Baayan Bakari will lead us in a workshop focused on 'The Power of Cultural Identity' and its interconnectedness with professional success. 

Baayan Bakari has been a community teacher for 18 years. He was a classroom teacher for over six years at a small school in the heart of East Oakland. In 1996 he won an Echoing Green Fellowship to begin the Amafula Manhood Training curriculum, which later developed into the Khepera Curriculum. The Khepera Curriculum has been independently evaluated and found to improve self-esteem.
