View Recap of 2022 Dope Black Girls Brunch

Dope Black Girls Brunch will celebrate the accomplishments of black women in politics, activists, women in media, and rising stars who are making a difference not only in their community but worldwide. This year’s honorees include Abby Phillip, Anchor, CNN; Valeisha Butterfield, VP of Partnerships & Entertainment, Google; Tonya Lombard, VP of Global External Affairs, AT&T; and Donye Taylor, Creative Philosopher.

Hosted by Bravo TV’s ‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ and Johns Hopkins University Professor Dr. Wendy Osefo, the annual brunch is an empowering and vibrant gathering celebrating Black women’s essence, achievements, and unity. This unique and inspiring event is a testament to the strength and resilience of Black women, providing a dynamic space where individuals can connect, share, and uplift one another. 

“This is our sixth year hosting this dynamic event during CBC Weekend and it gets better each year,” said Nykidra ‘Nyki’ Robinson, founder and CEO of Black Girls Vote. “Black women are a collective power with a great amount of influence in the community. As we continue to work towards building equity, it’s important that we maintain momentum in leading the conversations about political engagement and impactful legislation that can change the trajectory of our lives.”

According to the Pew Research Center, the elections of 2018, 2020 and 2022 were three of the highest-turnout U.S. elections of their respective types in decades. The 2018 election had a 49% turnout,  the highest rate for a midterm since 1914. Over the years, Black women have been integral in voter mobilization and voter turnout. In the most recent presidential election of 2020, the League of Women Voters reported that more than two-thirds of Black women turned out to vote—the third highest rate of any race-gender group. Further studies also show that Black eligible voters are more likely to be women than they are to be men (53% vs. 47%). 

On the heels of some recent pivotal decisions by the United States Supreme Court and gearing up for the 2024 Presidential elections, Dope Black Girls Brunch will serve as a conduit to continue the conservations about the work that must be done to ensure that voters are engaged and educated on significant policies and legislation that is crucial to underserved communities or marginalized groups, and empowered to take action. 

“Being a dope Black girl is showing up as your full self, unapologetically—saying ‘This is me, this is who I am,’ being proud of it, and just being that person and that community for other women like yourself,” said Mia Davis, founder of Color Vision.

Additionally, participants will network with other ‘Dope Black Girls,’ participate in various activations, receive gift bags, and take in the vibes. Delicious brunch will be served with a curated open bar courtesy of Moët & Chandon and 21Seeds.
