Mama Africana Girl Rising / by Evey Sekajipo

Mama Africana got invited to represent our organization at two Tampa showings of the invigorating documentary "Girl Rising". 

The film presents the remarkable stories of nine girls around the world and their journey to fight for their education. These powerful stories deliver a simple, critical truth: "Educate Girls and you will Change the World." We in MA strongly stand behind seeing this reality come to fruition in our city, starting with Black girls. 

We are grateful that as a local organization we were able to be recognized at the Tampa Theatre showing by having our own table. Ivy Enekwa, MA Academic Advocate, did an excellent job sharing our story after the AMC Veterans showing.

If you haven't, I encourage to watch this movie.

Mama Africana are Girls Rising to change the world!
