On August 1, 2009 about 15 ladies from the Black Women in Europe™ and Women of the African Diaspora social networks and readers of Evia Moore’s Ezine, at the bequest of Lorraine Spencer, gathered at the home of Katrice N. Jones on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

Sisters were in town from Philadelphia, New York and Stockholm as well as the Washington, DC metropolitan area and were treated to a regional delicacy, crab cakes, fruit, veggies, chicken, sweet and savory patisseries and smoothies.

In between the jovial and robust conversations, among women in a variety of professions, about world travel, autism, and living in Asia, Europe and the United States we were treated to massage therapy by Barbara Hakal of Hakalistics Healing Hands.

And no one left empty handed but instead with swag bags filled with treats including the career book for women, Ambition is not a dirty word, soothing help for high heel wearers appropriately called “Soulmates”, a Pingo calling card and more.

“This is the second time Lorraine has pulled us together as a group. The first time I met some of the sisters from the Black Women in Europe social network was in January 2007. I was in from Sweden visiting my parents in Washington, DC and called Lorraine”, Adrianne George explains. “I put the word out in the network and Lorraine, Didi and Katrice met me at the Washington Marriott. We had a good time. But when Lorraine pulled the network together this past January for ‘A Room Full of Sistahs’ it was magical. So many members were in from Europe for Obama’s inauguration”, says George. “Our August event felt just as good”.
