Recently, I was invited by the President of the Yellow Rose Society at the University of Miami, Phalande Jean (who is also a Co-Founder and President and CEO of PhaJenn, LLC), a fashion accessory company, to discuss "Beauty of the Black Woman: A Conversation On The Perception of Beauty Through Time." I am thrilled to give this presentation because the topic is so meaningful and important.

Their company, PhaJenn, LLC, was also featured in Distraction Magazine.

I have given presentations for this organization as an invited speaker
in previous years because I love the fact that they are;
"a community service organization of [emerging majority] women that
strive to promote female pride by self-enrichment and social education."
This is very much in-line with Natural Is Cool Enough as the goal of this
Blog is to do the same.

Since many N.I.C.E. readers are not in the city of Miami and are reading from other cities, states and countries and may not be able to attend, I will update you on this exciting event after it takes place.
Also, below is a list of The Yellow Rose Society's upcoming events for Women's History Month 2015, on this fantastically creative and interesting poster. A yellow rose has never looked so beautiful! In the context of the event for which I will serve as the Featured Speaker (see flyer above), be sure that amongst the discussion of beauty of Black women inside and out, over time, I will also talk about the beauty of Black women's hair because without a doubt, Natural IS Cool Enough and of course that's N.I.C.E.!
