My mom and I had the amazing opportunity to attend the concert on the second night of the event and we had a time! Lola Brooke brought the quintessential Brooklyn energy. Jadakiss reminded us of why he’s one of the greatest to ever do it. 50 Cent took us on a magical musical journey. Jill Scott gave us the neo-soul energy we needed and Mary J. Blige gave us bop after bop while showcasing her infamous moves.

The last day started with a Gospel Brunch and then ended with a glorious performance by the Clark Sisters. Altogether, each day was created with intention.

By acknowledging the strength and potential of women, the Strength of a Woman Festival and Summit fosters a sense of community, promotes inclusivity, and empowers attendees to be agents of positive change in their lives and the world around them. Not to mention, to have the best time while doing it!
