Sisters of Today and Tomorrow (SOT) celebrated its 10th anniversary last weekend, with a two-day celebration in Atlanta.
The celebration kicked off at Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture & History, which included a program with Taliah Waajid, renowned Natural Hair Show convener & CEO of Taliah Waajid Brand, as the keynote speaker. Waajid brought a message of hope and connected-ness.
“She spoke about the importance of us as adults being open to connecting and communicating with youth,” said Carla Morrison, founder and executive director of SOT. “Taliah also encouraged us all to love on our self. Often times as women, we focus on taking care of everyone else, however we have to make sure we take care of and love on our individual selves.”
Gospel singing group God’s Gurls performed while Morrison honored 10 volunteers who have been integral in SOT’s growth.
