What people are  saying...

Peace & blessings,

I too was honored. I do what I do not for fame and glory but because I am duty bound and honor those who have come before me. So thank you for including me and making my husband and I feel welcomed. Everyone likes my award. And even though I have received many awards for business, community service, and for teaching, this  one was/is indeed special. Keep up the good work. Stay strong and in good health.

Dr. Akosua Al-Sabree, Co-founder of The Philly Locks Conference


Sister Marci, Shanti and the Walker family,

Thank you for the honor of being apart of a very special evening.
Your family spirit is what it takes to build an industry.

You are very welcome. Thank you for allowing Afro Blue to be a part of your very important event.  And congratulations to you for putting everything together so well.

I look forward to the next one.
