Sneak Peek, Live Show, & Juneteenth Celebration$40 per person for in-person, by donation for virtual
Join us on Emancipation Day for a Juneteenth celebration, featuring a sneak preview of the new Black Girl Magic Stories (BGMS) television docu-series, set to air on MMCTV later this year. BGMS tells the stories, triumphs, and hurdles of women from across the African diaspora living in the United States.
This virtual/in-person hybrid event includes live musical performances, spoken word poetry, and a Q&A panel with the cast moderated by Sydni Flowers. Those who attend the in-person event will also enjoy a private dessert and rosé reception with the cast. Virtual guests will experience all other aspects from the comfort of their home (but must provide their own dessert and rosé!).

A message from the show’s creator, Phillip Alexander Downie
I had the most amazing tribe of Black women raise me, from my mother and sisters to my grandmother and aunts! Growing up I never saw anyone like them on TV who weren’t an overly-exaggerated caricature version of Black women.
BGMS is dedicated to all of the amazing Black women in my life who raised me, who inspire me, who are the backbone of our society, and who constantly uplift our communities, asking for nothing in return! I love you, Black women!
