First 'My Black Woman' conference at UCL

As part of the follow-on from a UCL Beacon Bursary award last year for public engagement, UCL Geography hosted the first My Black Woman conference on 24th August for African diaspora entrepreneurs from the media and arts sector.

The day conference was hosted by Dr Ben Page, Faustina Anyanwu and Ms Gayle Thompson Igwebike, actress, model and fashion editor at C.Hub magazine.

Among those speaking were the poet and singer Ms Adunni Harunna, Ms Monica Abraham of Local Lion Marketing, Tola Onigbanjo the founder of Women4Africa award, and Mr Emeka Anaynwu, the publisher of C.Hub magazine.

Ms Nena Ubani, of Duchess TV and presenter of the popular talk show – ‘Tea with the Duchess’, lectured on the woes of social media and advantages of traditional media when it comes to reliability and trust.

The event ended with a bang as rapper Yezzi Yezzir bounced in with a sensational and powerful vocal performance supported by an acrobatic display from her dancers.
