To the 35 people who turned out to last evening’s Cocktails & Conversations, thank you so much. We laughed, we cried, we showed empathy and we engaged in meaningful, and hopefully transformative conversation. Meschida Philip and I did a vid post for those of you who wanted to come but could not, and I’ll be posting some pics to the Facebook page tomorrow.
A million thanks to Sue Brathwaite for allowing us to use her space, The Connection, again and thank you to Melisa Nicholas, the best mixologist in the game for bringing us more tasty cocktails. Thank you also to Eastern Caribbean Rum Co. for sponsoring the cocktail portion of the event and of course, much love to Meschida for debuting her film with the FemmePowered/Cocktails & Conversation audience.
