My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Black Womens Blueprint, Inc., Brooklyn, NY, USA
When the Co-Founder Ms. Farah Tanis called me to offer an idea of what she wanted to do, I was simply amazed at the sheer magnificence of the Love that exists in her for Pan-African Girls & Women’s' Rights residing in America. Ms. Tanis & her fellow Board Members chiseled at this idea to expand Black Women's Blueprint (BWB) to become a wide Network that incorporates the motto "the personal is political". Women from all walks of Life (and some men) are welcomed with their individual gifts and talents, which are encouraged to blossom and sprout to our communities.
It all started with bringing Art and History into NYC public schools. It is admirable to recognize the thirst and enthusiasm that these demonstrated by being active participants in the homework and projects about notable Blacks that are not highlighted in the History books.
There are other phenomenal “Truth Commissions” that Black Women’s Blueprint endeavors to educate us about whose shoulders we stand on. Successful productions such as Mother Tongue Monologues that receive “Rave Reviews”. Because the founders of BWB are in tuned with our women’s needs, this year a day of release was created; Catharsis offered attendees a safe space to release particular traumas and it also opened the doors to local practitioners and artists to showcase their talents. Black Women’s Blueprint believes in supporting local businesses/entrepreneurs and this in and of itself is a method of Occupying Wall Street.
Quite recently, in the new office space a Museum entitled “MoWRe” has been erected in Honor of the Women of Wednesday in Mississippi. To sit at the table where Ms. Coretta Scott-King, Rosa Parks, and other Civil Rights Women communed to bring about change for the people is an esteemed honor.
Black Women’s Blueprint is the Light House of our community. It would be a privilege to support such a successful circular organization to continue with the work that it is already doing.
