Join Port of Harlem publisher Wayne Young and Port of Harlem contributor Kennedra Tucker for a 30-minute ZOOM discussion on “Recipe for Change: Amplifying Black Women” show Saturday, September 10, from 8p to 8:30p (Washington, DC time). Tucker has written for Port of Harlem magazine since she was in high school. Today, she is a K-12 health and physical education specialist pursuing a doctorate in school system leadership at the University of Maryland – College Park and is a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Educational consultant.
Before our first ever virtual event, Port of Harlem is making the Daytime Emmy Award nominated show available for your on-demand viewing. Each episode of “Recipe for Change” gathers celebrities, chefs, activists, and creators around a dinner table for necessary conversations. In this episode, Mary J. Blige, Saweetie, and Tabitha Brown partner with chefs Kelis and Danielle Saunders to host dinner guests who I was vaguely familiar with, but you - - or maybe your kids - - or grandkids – may know.
The guests included Chlöe Bailey, Winnie Harlow, Kelly Rowland, Jackie Aina, Keisha Lance Bottoms, Roxane Gay, Sarah Jakes Roberts, Lynn Whitfield, Yaya DaCosta, Loni Love, Renee Montgomery, Danielle Young, Angelica Ross, Hallease, and Elaine Welteroth. Comedian Amanda Seales joined the episode as an on-the-street reporter, speaking with Black women and their allies in Los Angeles.
