B: The Beginning

The BRAVE summit was founded in the fall of 2015 by three Georgetown alumni. On November 1st, 2015 an email was sent out to about 20 other Georgetown students, with the subject line stating "Empowering Black Women Summit." With a key line stating, "In the United States and on this on this campus, in particular, black women have been slept on for far too long" the founding board members were called to action to create a platform that brought the Black women to the forefront.

The first summit, held in the spring of 2016, brought  over 300 participants together to revel in all of the #blackgirlmagic. 


R: Recognition of the Black Woman

In BRAVE's second year, we were able to sore to even greater heights.  The 2017 Summit, “The Recognition of the Black Woman” went farther by recognizing and unleashing the voice, the spirit and the power of black women that laid the foundation before and the ones that will continue carrying this torch. In our first year, we were able to host 300+ attendees, both black women and allies, which shows the need for a summit that actually is the first of its kind in our nation. In March, we only continued to grow with over 400 participants in attendance.
