Members of a group of community-based organizations recently embarked upon a month-long bus caravan that stretched across several cities throughout the southern region of the country, including places like Atlanta; Birmingham; Little Rock, Arkansas; Houston and Jackson, Mississippi. The tour was designed specifically to support Black girls and young women by providing them with resources and networking tools to help build on their personal and professional career goals. Appropriately titled, “Joy Is Our Journey Dream Bus Tour,” the eye-catching, hot pink vehicle carried a portable ‘Dream Village’ that featured collaborative workshops, face-painting stations and other interactive activities. But why dedicate this endeavor exclusively to the South? And how come this community collective decided to partner with one of the most provocative and controversial Southern Black women in entertainment—Houston’s own and three-time Grammy-award winner, Megan Thee Stallion? Join us as I SEE U Host Eddie Robinson chats unguarded with the Visionary Founder of Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium, LaTosha Brown as well as the group’s Executive Director, Malikah Berry Rogers. The pair will share their strategies and ideas behind how they’ve been able to transform mindsets of young teen girls and even adult women of a certain age realize their full potential while living and sometimes surviving in the Deep South.
