Friday Girl TV Hosted Talk Back Series: The Sex Kitten vs. The Super Brain Panel Discussion at Spelman College
Friday Girl TV held Talk Back: The Sex Kitten vs. The Super Brain this past Saturday, September 24, 2011, at 2:00PM, a panel discussion on African American women in media at Spelman College. The panel discussion was free to students and $5.00 to non-students with all proceeds going to Girls Incorporated of Greater Atlanta.
Moderated by Friday Girl TV host, October Rose, the panel discussion featured an esteemed panel of media professionals: Nina Brown (On-Air Personality 11Alive), Saptosa Foster (Managing Partner 135th Street Agency), Nicci Gilbert (Former lead singer of Brownstone and C.E.O. of No Ego Entertainment), Angela Gomes (Writer, Producer & Director for TV & Film), Renee Knorr (Fashion & Beauty Director, 19th Hole Magazine) and Jazzy McBee (On-Air Personality at Hot 107.9). Panelists discussed the defining of womanhood as it pertains to African American women and various other topics regarding women of color and media. Both panelists and audience members ended the event by reading the Legacy Pledge written by Jaha Asante which reaffirmed the women’s commitment to creating and upholding positive images for women of color. Attendees received gift bags from Carol’s Daughter with additional gift bag goodies from I Survived My Period, Vitamin Water and others.
The Sex Kitten vs. The Super Brain was the first event in the Talk Back Series, a three part series of art, culture and technology events geared toward entertaining and educating audiences as it relates to creating positive and balanced imagery by, for and about women of color. “The panel discussion was a great way to examine how women are effected by media in our society and how technology and social media are the ultimate ways to create a balance in the images we see and a distinct way for women to speak out and talk back.” said October Rose, Founder of the Talk Back Series and Chief Creative Officer of Friday Girl TV.
