#FORTHELOVEOFBLACKGIRLS


A CELEBRATION, RE-EDUCATION & HEALING OF BLACK GIRLS

Never underestimate the power of A black girl. 

WELCOME TO THE HOME OF THE
6TH ANNUAL UNIQUELY YOU SUMMIT FOR GIRLS

SEPTEMBER 2016 - PHILADELPHIA, PA

HELPING BLACK GIRLS UNIQUELY DEFINE, DISCOVER AND BECOME WHO THEY ARE.

The UNIQUELY YOU SUMMIT is an experiential dialogue that unites black women and girls of similar backgrounds in order to eliminate the perception of isolation, and meet self-esteem needs not addressed by conventional outreach and instruction.  By discovering the universality of their feelings and experiences, the barriers to becoming who they are are lifted.

This one-of-a-kind annual two-day forum serves as a catalyst to evoke gripping discussion and a much-needed conversation among 500 black girls (ages 11-18) that addresses the complexities of being 'black and female' in America.

Teyonah Parris’ passion for the organization and its cause will be highlighted at the annual UNIQUELY YOU SUMMIT in September 2016. Themed #ForTheLoveOfBlackGirls, this unique summit hosts 500, 11 to 18 year old black girls from the northeastern United States. The two-day event engages girls in conversations about the dynamics of being 'black and female' in America. 

Discovering who you are as a young woman is one of the most important steps in womanhood, and the UNIQUELY YOU organization is a wonderful support system and network for young girls – providing them with invaluable tools for self-awareness, identity, self-care and self-love. I am so happy to align my efforts with UYS as we continue to unapologetically serve black girls!
