An 1831 declaration by Maria W Stewart (1803-1880), the first African-American woman to give public lectures, in which she said:
"O, ye daughters of Africa, awake! awake! arise! no longer sleep nor slumber, but distinguish yourselves. Show forth to the world that ye are endowed with noble and exalted faculties".
A London POSITIVE Black Women Platinum Club member is intelligent, CONSCIOUS and tenacious woman with an awareness of self and an awareness of her surroundings - who finds strength & learnings from a cultural heritage bequeathed by African ancestors whilst domicilled in the UK. Learning from the experience of those who went before to "live her life like it's golden".
Do you possess the capability to value "WE" as well as the reversal and self-focussed "ME"?
London is a big metropolis, and there are meet up groups with 1000s of individuals. This group is not one such. This is a SMALL group for women who believe in the development of CONSCIOUSNESS and who wish to interact with AWAKE women of this mindset ONLY.
Join us if you get strength from being a "participator" in the life, and not just a doubtful "spectator" watching life & time pass you by in superficial pursuits.
We wish to see the same face twice and extend our own circle. This is YOUR social calendar too. Put YOUR event in the calendar and be joined by good conscious positive company with gravitas. We have wide ranging interests. Join us if you are ambitious, enjoy intellectualism and USE your brain, and not just working on instinct going thro' the motions each day.
This Meet Up is not a business venture, and we charge no additional fees but that necessary to retain this communication point on Meet Up.
We would prefer your access to the group to be free ... the best things in life are free. Join us if you can afford to make the committment to pay the small £5 subscription fee once PER YEAR to keep the group going ...... that's ONLY ~ 9p per week and little can be purchased for ~ 9p per week in the UK where everyone is a wannabe millionnaire ! Note that there is a commission subtracted by Meet Up from your £5 too.
Do NOT click to join us if you do not want to pay this subscription. Our time is valuable, and there are numerous other meet up groups that you can join. We are volunteers and DO NOT have the time to chase YOU for subscriptions. As the adage says "there is not such thing as a free lunch".
So join us if you see beauty in your self, family and people of African heritage too and are not confused by a media fixated on eurocentric representations, as you need no convincing that there is beauty of mind and body in the global African & Caribbbean community too - that's in your DNA.
We believe in the philosophy "that with confidence, you have won before you have started"
