A group of our 2018 honorees gathered for a discussion about using digital media to amplify the voices of African women everywhere.
Last Thursday, some of the most best and brightest women in media, came together for OkayAfrica's "Our Community, Our Stories" panel held in conjunction with our annual 100 Women list.
It was a night of sisterhood and conversation, featuring a panel of some of our 2018 honorees, including National Correspondent at MSNBC Joy-Ann Reid, Founder of Well-Read Black Girl Glory Edim, Visual Artist, Photographer & Activist Delphine Diallo, Digital Content Director at Essence & Founder of AfriPOP! Yolanda Sangweni, and Filmmaker & Social Activist Idil Ibrahim.
The women discussed new ways to utilize digital media to amplify the voices of women in the diaspora, and doled out gem after gem to help mobilize and inspire fellow African women in the industry. We streamed the entire conversation live on our Facebook page, you can watch it below.
