1. Black Professionals Meet-Up
Date: Friday, July 10, 2015 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Location: Baton Rouge, LA

The Baton Rouge Black Professionals Meet-up is a group primarily made up of men and women over the age of 21 here in the Baton Rouge area whom share an interest in ethnic heritages rooted in the African American diaspora. We come from broadly diverse educational, professional, and social backgrounds, but we have a common interest: to come together for social networking. We strive to promote social connections between our members, and to promote a healthy and free exchange of information and ideas between the members of the group that will enrich their lives.
2. "Broken Silence" by D. Kim Singleton Book Discussion
Date: Saturday, July 11, 2015 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Location: Suitland, MD

For too many years, African American women have suffered in silence under the dual oppressions of racism and sexism. Expected to care for others before they care for themselves, forced to deal alone with emotional and physical abuse, black women have turned stress and rage inward—with devastating consequences. But life doesn’t have to be this way. In Broken Silence, renowned psychologist Dr. D. Kim Singleton, herself a black woman, shares the inspiring stories of eight African-American women who have healed themselves by opening their hearts and minds in therapy.
