56 sorority sisters descended onto Costa Rica for a 3-day, melanin-infused trip, celebrating sisterhood and blackness, and I am SO here for it. Aren’t you?
The ladies, aged 29-35, celebrated their 10-year anniversary since joining the Beta Alpha chapter of Delta Sigma Theta at Florida A&M University.
LaToya Owens, who organized the event, told told Yahoo Style:
“Our sorority is all about black excellence…We want to serve as an example and [show] appreciation of black women. Our commitment is to scholarship and service, and this was to honor the sisterhood.”
The ladies spent three days bonding, and then went to a private beach where they took the photos.
“Black women are often overlooked in beauty,” Owens said “This was our way to shine a light on all types of black beauty.”
Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
