EMERGENCY EVENT ALERT: AWGG and Grenada present a forum: Women in Power: "Making A Global Diffeence"

By Gloria Dulan-Wilson

Hello All:

My wonderful Sister/Friend Mde Masidi Dioune invited me to participate in a most auspicious event at the United Nations.  I unfortunately will be in Maryland attending a conference on housing and home ownership, and will be unable to attend.  But I definitely think that Black women of good conscious, who love Africa and are proud of their African heritage, and are concerned about the futures of Africans and African Americans, should definitely attend.  So I'm posting it here for your information and for you to follow up as well. 

This organization has done so many wonderful things, both in the United States and in Africa, including the reinstatement of "The Day of The African Child;" helping African female entrepreneurs start their own businesses and supporting them individually and collectively; interceding with leaders during delicate issues when thousands of lives were on the line. For those of you who think African women are oppressed, or subservient, you need to pay a visit to AWGG.  Our sisters are not only entrepreneurs, they are moguls.  They are in businesses for themselves, and are successful at what they do; but they don't view themselves as competing with their men; they complement them instead. 

We could learn a lot from them, and from learning what they've known all along - united we stand, divided we fall.

The great thing about Masidi and the rest of the members is that they are creative, and pitch in whereever the need arises, as opposed to standing on status.  In addition to being a wonderful, compassionate ambassador, she is also a fabulous cook, having once been the head of cuisine a the Windows on Harlem Restaurant at the Harlem State Office Building, while simultaneously running a traditional African restaurant and club on Malcolm X and 124th St. 

This is  a prime opportunity for solidarity of purpose and activity.  Make it your business to attend and participate in the forum. 
Stay Blessed &
