On Saturday, May 14th, UNIQUELY YOU SUMMIT, INC. will be hosting "Conversations #ForTheLoveOfBlackGirls," a necessary dialogue & healing induced by the death of Delaware Teen, AMY JOYNER-FRANCIS. A dialogue for, about, among, and led by black girls.
"A classmate of Amy’s (a senior at Howard High School), Suleida Zayas, claims that social media is playing a big part in the desire for teens to film fights. With fights being viewed as “cool” to upload online, Zayas says many students try to “outdo” each other..."
This conversation is FOR GIRLS ONLY. And in remaining consistent with the organization's goals and objectives, we want to create an experiential dialogue for black girls (and safe outreach) that aids in eliminating the perception of isolation. Our hope is that by discovering the universality of their feelings and experiences, the barriers to becoming their best and most unique self are removed.
It's time to talk. Join us.
Drexel University's Argie Allen, Ph.D, director of clinical training for couple and family therapy in the College of Nursing and Health Professions, will facilitate closure to the emotional discussion.
