Black and Minority Women are a lot like Black orchids. Black Orchids are a symbol of power and absolute authority. It is generally known that black is an imposing color, symbolizing authority and submission and, combined with the luxurious beauty of the Orchid, the Black Orchid came to symbolize great power.

I am a native Georgian and grew up in the Metro Atlanta Area. My professional job is an Information Technology Consultant specializing in JDEdwards. I’ve worked for companies such as GE Computer Service, Raytheon Corporation (Electronics Technician), and have contracted with companies such as CH2M Hill, Coca Cola USA, Exxon, CTG, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Corning, and several more over a span of 26 years. I wanted something legendary for Minority Women in the arts. I had an interest in creating something historic that would uplift Minority Women. That’s when I created Black Women In Jazz Awards. The Arts portion came about six months later. This year, 2022 will be the 8th award show for Black Women In Jazz & The Arts Awards. I am the founder and creator of March is International Black Women In Jazz & The Arts Month.
n April 2016, after creating Black Women In Jazz & The Arts Awards, I felt that Black History Month was not enough to celebrate the contributions that Women of Color have made to world history. Many contributions have never been acknowledged. I knew that March was Women’s History Month and I am so happy about that but felt like Black Women needed our own month to celebrate the contributions that we have made and continue to make. So, I decided that we would create April as Black Women’s History Month where we would focus on the contributions from domestic engineering to medicine to politics to inventions to entrepreneurship and all in between, would be celebrated. I had no idea that Black and Minority Women of African Descent had contributed so much to this world because most of it was not taught in schools in the past. Black Women’s History Honors has been held annually in Atlanta, Georgia in the month of April since 2016,
