The Sophisticate Chronicles will present “Sistah’s Chat” on Saturday at the Public Library auditorium in downtown Chattanooga. This event will feature an open panel discussion featuring women from across the state.
“Reaching out and empowering young women via our voices and stories should be the main goal of women in leadership in every community across the U.S.,” says Lorean C. Mays. Ms. Mays, the former executive director and former 2005-2006 titleholder of the Miss Black Tennessee USA Pageant is the Blogger behind “The Sophisticate Chronicles” and host for this event.
“Sistha’s Chat” will serve as a new platform for girls and women to share their stories and discuss pressing issues such as race relations, violence, images depicted in the media, self esteem, bullying, and many others that girls and women of all races face. Immediately following guest attending will have the chance to “Meet and Greet” the featured panelist and a chance to purchase an autographed copy of “Single Girl Summer” by Author Deanna K. Burrell.
The panel will feature:
Angelnetta Ulmer (mental health counselor for over 25 years, student services coordinator at Upward Bound Math and Science (PRISM), UTC)
DaNeitra Hall (glogger of Fairy Glam Mother.com, lifestyle event coordinator, and mother of USA National Miss Tennessee Junior Princess Kendall-Joy Hall)
Deanna K. Burrell (author, "Voted Most Creative" and "Single Girl Summer", motivational speaker, marketing/sales WVON Radio Chicago)
Natalie Newbill (Miss Black TN USA 2012 and motivational speaker)
Prince Torrence (stylist at "Haven of Bella" Salon/Nurse)
“We want to be able to reach out to girl and young women as well as our peers," said Ms. Mays. "This will be one of many to come. A platform for us to truly discuss the issues we deal with on a daily basis without being criticized. To show that open and honest dialogue with each other can help more than harm.”
