What's a Dear Black Women Circle?
DBW Affirmation Circles are affirming and transformative gatherings of Black women from all backgrounds that center affirmations letters we have written. Imagine something like a dope cookout, mixed with an affirming retreat, mixed with a bomb ass cipher, mixed with an amazing conversation with kindred spirits you didn’t know you had.
Bring your homegirls and come through to our 1st NYC Circle at the start of AfroPunk weekend! To celebrate, we're providing food and gifting DBW shirts!
