For this years Black History Month, some of the amazing women in our community featured in Olmec’s 100 Great Black Women Speak project. 

The project was inspired by ‘The Bronze Woman,’ a poem written in 1968 by Cécile Nobrega, to commemorate the dignity, strength, and achievements of African and Caribbean women everywhere. Each year on 8th October, Olmec marks the anniversary with a recital of the poem, joined by local performers. 

The theme of 100 Black Women Speak this year was Black Girl Power to celebrate Black women and girls across the globe. To be a window to the present, past and future through the voices Black women.
