Often, the journey involves myth, misinformation, and fear. Because of late detection, Blacks are frequently diagnosed less and have higher mortality rates. Further, despite better treatment options, breast cancer diagnoses have not decreased in the Metro-Atlanta area or in the United States. Learn more and reserve seats here.

Our Women SuperStars Luncheon brings together legends like Suzanne de Passe, Margert Avery, Lyn Whitfield and Julie Dash, emerging stars like actress Brely Evans, top level industry executives like Cheryl Boone Issacs and Connie Orlando, visionary and creative industry women like producer/director Ava DuVernay and producer Shelby Stone for a star-studded presentation of awards.
