Gumbo YaYa in Action: Intern, Corporate Sponsorship, and More!
Greetings Gumbo YaYa Supporters,
We are excited to announce that Gumbo YaYa enters the 2nd month of the 2nd cycle this Sunday.
Our session this week is: “Mother. Ourselves.” facilitated by Alexis Pauline Gumbs & Zachari Curtis.
Check http://iamnotaproject.wordpress.com/calendar-of-events/ for the description.
All events are held at 214 Broadway St. in Durham, NC. We begin at 3 pm and end at 5:30 pm.
Also, let's virtually and collectively welcome Ms. Kenya C. Harris and Queen Precious Jewel Earth Zabriski to the Gumbo YaYa planning committee. Kenya is our official Intern and Queen has organized and supported community-based initiatives in Durham for many years. We are blessed to have them.
Additonally, It is indeed a pleasure to inform you all that Gumbo YaYa is currently finalizing the details of our first corporate sponsorship with American Express. This funding will allow us to buy books, gift cards, and could possibly fund our weekend retreat! We will keep you updated about the specifics in up-coming messages.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement. You all are why Gumbo YaYa continues to float easy.
Calm Spirits and Cool Waters,
Ebony Noelle Golden, MFA, MA
