Happy MLK Day!
I hope that you all had a chance to the community is some way, shape or form this weekend. Dr. King’s powerful words and actions will forever be ingrained in the fabric our country’s history, and we should all be grateful for his dedication to inspire us to live in a more just and equal society.
On Friday, I had the absolute pleasure of attending Power Hour DC, a networking event that was presented by The Branding Muse and The Womanly Curve. Held at U Street’s Pure Lounge, the venue provided a great atmosphere for attendees to let their hair down, enjoy reduced-priced drinks and connect with new friends.
The room was a buzz with great music and tons of conversation, and it was great to see a few familiar faces in the room. Halfway through the networking session, hostesses Emmelie De La Cruz, founder of The Branding Muse and Nicole Gardner, founder of The Womanly Curve, got the crowd’s attention to honor DC “Power Players” with awards. Ebonie Johnson Cooper (Friends of Ebonie), James Robinson (Kitchen Cray) and Matthew Talley (DMVFollowers) were three of the five individuals acknowledged for their entrepreneurship, drive and service to the D.C. community.
The District was the first stop for the Power Hour networking events. Miami, Los Angeles and Atlanta are just a few of the many upcoming stops this spring — so be sure to stay tuned to The Branding Muse for when Power Hour will stop in your city.
Many congrats to the honorees and Emmelie and Nicole for putting on such a fantastic event! To learn more about The Branding Muse or The Womanly Curve, you can check them out on Twitter: @BrandingMuse and @TheWomanlyCUrve.
