  1. Hello — This is Burnadette with the Women of Color Empowerment Conference. I was wondering if we could change what you have as “South Florida Women of Color Conference” to the “Women of Color Empowerment Conference” and also change the website to be consistent with the press release. The website is —

  2. Good day,
    Please consider adding the “Historic Ali (pronounced ALLY) Cultural Arts Center located in Pompano Beach, FL to your list of historical venues to visit.

    Thank You
    Cherolyn Davis
    Director of Programs

  3. Please consider adding the Ocean City Jazz Festival to your event list. The Ocean City Community was established in 1949 and was the first place African Americans could purchase coastal property in NC. The Festival will be in its 9th year and helps the community promote its history and preserve its historical buildings. Past artists include: Karen Briggs, Lao Tizer, Toni Murillo, Gerald Veasley, Mark Whitfield, Cyrus Chestnut, Althea Rene and more!
