Black Girl Glitter 2
CaShawn Thompson, who coined the hashtag #blackgirlsaremagic (and also sells t-shirts and hoodies with the slogan) a few years ago, told the Los Angeles Times that she did so because there’s something about black women that other people can’t understand. “Sometimes our accomplishments might seem to come out of thin air, because a lot of times, the only people supporting us are other black women,” she said. In that same vein, get all sparkly and prepare to shop at this event hosted by Amorous Ebony and designed to highlight black women and femme artists and makers. With performances by Cierralione, Kira-Lynae, Gardens_n_Ghettos, Randi Roberts, Ashley-U; a set from DJ Black Lady, and a selection of vendors, it will be much-needed time to celebrate the magic of black women. Organizers say glitter and other shiny things are encouraged, and the flier notes POC only. 9 p.m.-1:30 a.m., Tightfisted Fashion: Resale & Consignment Store, 2114 N. Charles St. #100, facebook.com/events/102480150515008, $10.
