3.24 "Women's Her-Story presented by @greenearthpoetscafe | It was a pleasure emceeing this phenomenal poetry celebration of women for #womensherstorymonth. The highlight was presenting "Woman of the Year" NYC Council woman @alicka_ampry_samuel41 with a bouquet. Alicka had such an inspirational speech! I love this message (Paraphrased) "Instead of advocating for your children to get into schools outside of where you live, advocate that our schools be better schools, teach at those schools, get the contracts for buildings built, work and create the businesses. Be strategic and work together! " damn right! Ppl from here should be apart of the economic developments here in #Brooklyn and not just being pushed out. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Also shoutout to NYS Assembly @latricemwalker for attending, Spokeswoman @palatialpublishingllc , featured poets, The Composition, and the amazing talented line up of artists that touched the stage and made this event so special! #groupeconomics #gentrification #oldbrooklyn #newbrooklyn #brownsville #housingcrisis #fightingthegoodfight #payattention #poets #rolemodels #blackwomen #womenempowerment #blackwoman #blackexcellence #inspiration #motivation #politicking #poetry #writers #ispeakpoet #emcee #muslimah #hijabi #blackmuslimahexcellence #blackgirlmagic #Najmah53
