Tell us a little about your journey thus far.

My journey thus far has not been an extraordinary one. It is imbued with the spirit of the ancestors and our legacy. In my energetic 60's, I have to come to realize that you don't need things to be happy. And so in my quiet times, I have started to reflect about life in general and the things that I have come to believe. I have come to realize that you need love of the Creator, family, friends, laughter, your personal truths & just sometimes - the solitude of the moment. I have come to believe that you must unload negative people & things just as you shed clothes that are sometimes too big, too old or too small. So as I settle down in NC, I now see beautiful sunsets and orange Venus skies that have eluded me in my past. Free from stress & anxiety, I now can feel the soft wisps of a summer wind. In my spare time, I have re-invented myself and now spend time learning line dances, Chicago Stepping and Salsa. I have started a hobby of making earrings. I have even planted bushes & shrubs.

Are you an "Active" African American woman at least 55 years of age living in the RDU area? (We are looking for women who are still physically & mentally active and can get around easily).

Yes, I am now in my 68th wonderful, glorious, sexy years! And hopefully it will only get better!

What do you expect to gain as a result of joining "Black & Silver"?

Friendships, stimulating thought, social networking, an opportunity to volunteer, travel with friends and encouragement to exercise daily.

Can you attend at least one meeting or event every 2 months? (In order to keep your membership active, you must be able to attend one meetup every 2 months. Members not active for a consecutive 6 months are automatically removed from membership.)

Yes, I'll always try to be at most meetups, but taking care of my elderly mom will always take precedence.

Dues are $30 a year. Dues are used for paying our monthly fees to Dues are non-refundable & must be received 1 week after acceptance or you are automatically removed. Are you willing to pay yearly dues?



Moving into a new state from Brooklyn, NY was exciting. But as I settle into this wonderful state, I found a need to add new friends, places and experiences. I thought that a great way to do all of the above was to organize this meetup group.
