Black Ballad is excited to present to you our first event: Cocktails & Conversation on Black History on Friday 28th October at Crypt on the Green in Clerkenwell.
The goal with our articles, videos & overall platform is to provide a space for British women of black origin to share their experiences authentically & ultimately create a better world for black women.
We have the same goal with #CocktailsAndConvo: It will be an evening of celebrating the talents, trials & triumphs of black British women through honest conversation with the women that are creating, shaping and documenting our history.
Our Speakers include:
- Christine Ohuruogu – 400m Commonwealth, World & Olympic Champion
- Florence Adepoju – Founder of MDMFlow
- Ade Hassan – Founder of Nubian Skin
- Fiona Rutherford – Reporter at Buzzfeed UK
- Bridget Minamore – Poet & Freelance Journalist
- Theresa Ikoko – Playwright of Girls
Our Founder & Editor Tobi Oredein will also talk about Black Ballad’s future, as we take the next step in becoming a digital media company that authentically & uncompromisingly represents black British women, by launching our crowdfunding campaign.
Of course, there will be cocktails and other refreshments. More importantly, you’ll be alongside other black British women also hoping to contribute towards making the world a better place for black women everywhere. We’d love to see you on Friday 28th October!
