When Sisters from 16 Different EU Countries Get Together, Good Things Happen!

I made it to Vienna for the 1st Black European Women's Congress and I am so grateful to be here. Unfortunately the hotel does not have a wireless connection and I am having connection problems using the cables, so I cannot blog live and share the photos and videos I have taken (yet), but in a few days you will be able to see what words can barely describe: sisterhood is a wonderful thing.

Imagine a room full of intellectuals, activists, artists, mothers, students and others who want to make Europe a place where black women (men and of course children) are treated with respect, given fair access to jobs, where their education and accomplishments are acknowledged (but not considered novelties). The Europe we invision is truly competitive in the global arena because it is inclusive and thus benefits from the talents and diversity it has, to truly become an economic leader.

Okay, I am back to one of the many working groups. More later!

Sister! I will be there with you next year, the Universe willing! I am so proud of the work you are doing. Believe it or not, there is a Pan-African Conference happening here in Copenhagen tomorrow evening. Knew there was a reason why I was here and not in Vienna. Many blessings and health. Keep up the great work. I am so appreciative!
Hugs,

LAB, how was the Pan African Conference in Copenhagen?!?!?!?!? I didn't know about that. We have to keep each other informed.

Hugs!
