I attended the Kick-Off Panel for The New Black Fest last night and it was amazing! The topic was Black Sustainability in the Era of You Know Who. (I refuse.) I didn't plan on live tweeting the event but these were some powerful people with important things to say that weren't easy to hear. I couldn't type fast enough. You can check out the event under#TNBF17, but here are a few of my favorite tweets!
'Historically, the role of gov't for white folks is to leave them alone. For Black folks its to get white folks to leave us alone.' #TNBF17
