AFRIPOP! Hosts African Women Create in Harlem (Recap)

We recently hosted our second “African Women Create” brunch at Minton’s in Harlem.

The afternoon featured a conversation between authors Chinelo Okparanta (“Under the Udala Trees“) and Akwaeke Emezi (“Sometimes the Fire Is Not the Fire“) and a bevy of amazing African women creatives. There was Abi-Ishola Ayodeji of BeyondClassicallyBeautiful.com, Ghanaian singer Jojo Abot, Nigerian singer Kaline, comedienne Agunda Okeyo, Chef Grace Odogbili, African Health Now’s Nana Eyeson-Akiwowo, jewelry designer Elsa Mehary, filmmaker Tigist Selam, the list goes on and on. (Can you tell we’re bragging?)

Recap this inspiring brunch and check back for our next gathering.
