Other conference sessions focused on health, economics, and violence. Throughout each session, panelists and speakers sought to redefine the African-American woman and her role in improving the dire conditions of poverty and violence in the Black community.
“(When I think of Black women) I think of someone who is rooted in faith, who puts their trust in God first and foremost,” said Cynthia Moore, a town hall workshop panelist and the education and community engagement director for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. “We know that the Black woman is strong, emotionally and physically. We know more often than not that she is the head of the household. She is the caregiver.”
