Black Women in Europe

Follow up from the Women of the African Diaspora Conference in Amsterdam

As fate would have it my plane from Gotehnburg, Sweden to Amsterdam was cancelled. We were put on the next flight scheduled for 4 hours later, which turned out to be late. I had resigned myself to the fact that I would miss the beginning and middle of the conference, including my panel discussion, and possibly make the networking hour. To my surprise when I arrived my panel had started, but it wasn’t too late for me to join.

So here are a couple of the photos from the conference with attendees and speakers from Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden (me), Denmark, and France. There may have been sisters there from other countries (I hope I didn’t leave anoyone out).

Organizers, participants

A full event summary is coming. Black Girl on Mars is writing the first draft (thanks!).
