Black Bloggers Chicago Attends Gratitude 4 Black Girls!


Gratitude 4 Black Girls:

A Safe Space on a Saturday

This past Saturday, Black Bloggers Chicago was thrilled to be a media sponsor for the Gratitude 4 Black Girls event.  Gratitude is a pop-up shop and art show curated to celebrate the talent, beauty, and influence of Black girls and women. The event was the inaugural event of boutique creative agency, Pretty Creative Hustle, as a part of their commitment to women of color and their growth and success.

The event held at Thirty65, showcased local black women owned businesses.  I attended the event with fellow Black Bloggers Chicago members and my daughter.  Every vendor and every artist were Black Women Owned Businesses.  The jam packed event held a variety of vendors with quality products and services catering to Black Women. I met so many black women entrepreneurs and artists that were located right here in Chicago that I had never heard of. I was thrilled to grab jewelry from Beautiful Fluff, hair and skin products from Classy Curlies and even enjoy some amazing food by black owned caterers and desert vendors.  I literally had a Jerk Chicken and Shrimp Alfredo that made me want to do cartwheels!!! It was so good!

To be in a room with so many beautiful black women, networking, connecting and supporting one another was such a beautiful display. There was an abundance of #BlackGirlMagic in the building!    I was so happy I brought my teenage daughter to this event. Seeing positive images of black women who are building businesses, creating art and celebrating one another was incredibly inpactful. My daughter left inspired and armed with a few new items to add to her wardrobe!

Pretty Creative Hustle, founder, Tatyerra Mikell and her team did an amazing job putting together this event. It was fun, well organized and cohesive.  When I spoke to her at the event, she stressed that her intention was to create a space to celebrate the beauty of being a black women.  Gratitude 4 Black Girls was a wonderful celebration of everything that we are. 

It was a Safe Space for Black Women to celebrate themselves on a Saturday! Well done Pretty Creative Hustle. Thank you for partnering with Black Bloggers Chicago on this incredible event.
