Boss Women Media also partnered with Tai Beauchamp, Lady Jade, Codie Oliver, and Mattie James as Brand Ambassadors for the summit. Each of these influential women will also be hosting a Watch Party in each of their cities (Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta) to promote the premiere of the summit and support the women of color in their communities.
Summit panel sessions were pre-recorded in Los Angeles on July 26 at Brigid Coulter’s Blackbird House, a place that centers on fostering productivity, well-being, creativity, and advocacy. Women students from the Howard Entertainment Program powered by Amazon Studios, joined in-person at Blackbird House as the summit’s live audience. The women in attendance were able to meet with speakers and influencers, allowing for a day full of connections and conversations.
“I am so thrilled that we are able to bring another great year of programming and content for The Black Girl Magic Summit to women across the U.S. and the world,” says Marty McDonald, founder and CEO of Boss Women Media. “Amazon’s Black Business Accelerator is a crucial partner for us, and their continued dedication to the furtherment of Black women allows us to bring in dynamic speakers and experiences while making it accessible for just about anyone through Prime Video. We’re excited for women of color everywhere to join us later this month on a journey of empowerment and evolution.”
