On Friday, March 29 Buffalo is back at it again as ADRI. V the Go Getta hosts her 5th Annual Go Getta Mix & Mingle. The perfect closeout to Women’s History Month, ADRI will honor and recognize her 2019 Talented Ten.
Each year ADRI. V chooses ten local trailblazing women who are making history right here in Western New York.
A concept modeled after W.E.B. DuBois’s “Talented Tenth,” the Talented Ten pays homage to a designation of leadership attributed to African American movers and shakers in the early 20th century.
Putting her own 21st century spin on it, ADRI’s 2019 Talented Ten Go Getta G.I.R.L.S. (Gifted, Intelligent, Relentless Leaders) include: Kaylene Adams (The Beautique LAB); Kendra Brim (President – Buffalo Urban League Young Professionals); Felicia Doctor (Owner – My Precious Angels Childcare Center); Davielle Jackson (Founder & CEO – Femi Secrets); Ekua Mends-Aidoo (Equity & Inclusion Officer – The Evergreen Association of WNY); Danielle Roberts (Executive Director – YMCA Buffalo-Niagara); Crystal J. Rodriguez, Esq. (Chief of Staff – Buffalo State College); JoAnna Rozier-Johnson (Director of Youth Services – Community Action Organization of WNY); Ebony Snow (Founder – Ebony Snow Hair Products); and Detra Trueheart (Founder – Young Miss Buffalo Pageant).
“I’m so excited to be honoring such a dynamic group of women with the Class of 2019,” said ADRI. V when asked about this year’s event. “We go from Black History Month straight to Women’s History Month and I love celebrating my sisters.” Not only is this year’s event a celebration of black excellence in Western New York but it’s also a celebration of life as ADRI celebrates her birthday on March 30th.
The Event takes place Friday, March 29 at MES Lounge 228 Franklin Street in Buffalo 6-10:00 p.m. Music will be provided by the official Go Getta DJ, DJ Brei. Tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased on EventBrite (Search: The Go Getta Mix and Mingle 2019). For more information, please text or call (214) 70A-DRIV
