“We started She BE Lady to address African Women with recent continental roots but open to all Black women. The festival honours and celebrates the resilience, strength, ingenuity and beauty of the African woman. We provide opportunities for Black and African women to engage in dialogue, inspire each other, build community, rewrite the narrative of Black Women in Canada being a monolith.”
The third annual event celebrates black women by pampering them on International Women’s Day weekend. Bringing opportunity and space for Black and African women to build community, She BE Lady is in partnership with Afrotropolis Arts Collective, Supafrik and DJ Revy B. Sponsored by TD and Factor.
