A program of The Black Girl Project, the Sisterhood Summit began in 2011 as a way to give young women and girls from across Brooklyn, the opportunity to come together in a nurturing atmosphere to explore issues that are important to them.
The Summit is also an opportunity for peers to interact with one another in ways which are not normally afforded to them—a space where they can question, interrogate and explore ideals that they may not be exposed to in everyday life.
It’s also a space where they can network, receive pertinent information, and build critical and analytical skills.
In keeping with our mission, the summit is a space that helps inspire dialogue and empower attendees.
However, it the Summit has grown to include adults, particularly community educators and parents. It has truly become an intergenerational event!

“We are the ancestors of the future and what we do now will have an impact.” - Yeye Luisah Teish
How can we live lives that our descendants and the next seven generations can be proud of? How can we walk with integrity in the face of an uncertain future? During this cypher, collaborators will explore these questions through a guided healing practice featuring breathwork, a shaking meditation and spellwork (writing) with the intention of rediscovering how to navigate being Ancestors in Training.
