“Post Election Liberation Dreams”

Election day is less than one week away. Have you voted? More importantly, what are your plans to move this fight forward after you vote? Katrina Adams leads our conversation on the significance of generational advocacy efforts and change. As a former professional tennis player and immediate past President and CEO of the US Tennis Association, Adams shares her liberation dreams as a Black female athlete thriving in and outside of the arena.

The My Colorful Nana Project is a collected group of Generous Thinkers. We invite all people to consider and celebrate their definitions of the words “beauty,” “femininity”, and Blackness through a discussion of hair. This is a project that allows individuals to define identity on their own terms. Find out more about our Generous Thinkers and multimedia content by checking out their website!
