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.
