Black History Month Tribute to the Strength and Beauty of Black Women

Sometimes we forget who we are, where we come from.
Though history books may minimize our collective contributions, and we are recognized during the shortest month of the year, trust me-- there is nothing "small" about people of color.

From humble beginnings, we have made a huge impact on all aspects of society: from arts and entertainment, to fashion, to politics, to sports, to the business arena. We are an undeniable force!
Strong. Innovative. Proud. Determined.

Particularly Black Women.

Which is why it gives the Ina Mae Greene Foundation tremendous pleasure to honor Black History Month.
A celebration of past achievements and future greatness.

We invite you to join us.

Defiant hair
Undeniable flair
"Attitude" to spare,
Like wine
We rare
Full hips
More-than-our-share lips,
Skin that's been
Sun Kissed,
Like wine,
We rare
Sassy and bold
Breaking the mold,
Our greatness untold,
Like wine,
We rare
