Women of Color Day has evolved from the work and contributions of many
women over many years. Commemoration of
the day recognizes the efforts within individual communities and identifies the
extensive history of outreach across racial, ethnic, cultural, religious and
generational lines resulting in many collaborations and much mutual respect.
As pictured, "Spirit
of Women of Color"—The Exhibit
documents these events and salutes those responsible. This exhibit is an
evolving work which invites contributions of stories, photos, clippings and
other relevant documents and information for consideration of inclusion. Every
effort will be made to be as responsive as possible, while maintaining a
balanced presentation which represents all Women of Color, with no group
presented as a minority. We are all equally important. We are all worthwhile.
We can all work cooperatively for mutual benefit to ourselves and our communities.
We are proud of who we are, models of action, without anger or surrender, with
an attitude of serenity for the world to follow.
to budget limitations, materials submitted for consideration of inclusion
in the exhibit cannot be returned unless accompanied by a self-addressed
envelope with appropriate postage.
