New Jersey Observes African Woman Day

Newark, NJ – The City of Newark’s African Commission and the Municipal Council will observe “African Woman Day in New Jersey” 2011 by hosting a celebration of African women in the African Diaspora in the Municipal Council Chamber at City Hall, on Friday, March 18, at 5 p.m.

The keynote speakers will be nationally-known opinion writer, columnist, and author Sophia A. Nelson, author of the new book “Black Woman Redefined,” which examines the inner lives of successful black women; Contracts Specialist/Contracting Officer for the Department of Homeland Security Dr. Eva Shaw-Taylor, and the reigning Miss Black USA, Nigerian-American actress and community activist Osas Ighodaro, who has starred in independent and short films, and is studying for her Master’s of Fine Arts in Acting at the Actors Studio at Pace University.

The second annual “African Woman Day in New Jersey” is designed to unite women of African descent in the Garden State, to celebrate their achievements, and to empower future generations. Themed “Honoring the African woman for her contribution to the world,” the celebration will also include a traditional cultural performance.
