50 Shades of Melanin

I am organizing my very first women empowerment conference in called, "50 Shades of Melanin" on Saturday May 25th from 10a-2pm at Muskegon Heights High School where I am planning to uplift and inspire young black girls and women in our community by discussing hygiene, self-care, mental health, physical well being, confidence, etc. Young girls and women in our community need events like this to help promote self-love and respect for one another, and I have deemed myself responsible for contributing as much of myself as possible by maximizing my time in Muskegon to create events like this one. I will also be debuting my second short film called, "dark sKKKin," which is a visual production with a centered focus around the controversy of colorism and the skin bleaching epidemic in the black community.

This visual will highlight the common narrative of many dark- skinned black women from childhood to adulthood, and some true testimonials of their earliest encounters with discrimination in comparison to their lighter/ "fair skinned" counterparts. This conference will consist of many important attractions such as local entrepreneur participating as vendors. A panel of Muskegon natives (women) who will discuss a variety of important topics listed above, a keynote speaker who is an African American chemical engineer, Steps with a Stella Kay, and so much more. This is an event you won’t want to miss.   FAQs How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Please contact Champagne Smith by phone at 517-348-6111. What time is registration? Please arrive as early at 9:15am to grab a light breakfast and register.
What should I bring into the event? Please bring money to the event as there will be plenty of vendors with merchandise that you won’t want to pass up. Can I pay at the door?  You are certainly welcome to pay at the door however, we will be accepting cash only.
