Sisters Speak: Examining the Impact of Race, Culture, and History on Body, Mind & Spirit

WURD Speaks is an exciting interactive event series produced by 900AM-WURD. These powerful community outreach events engage local thought leaders, nationally renowned speakers and the community-at-large on a range of topics that directly affect the African-American community.  The mission of each WURD Speaks symposium is to provide a thoughtful analysis of critical issues as well as dynamic community engagement.


900AM-WURD’s 2013 interactive event series continues with Sisters Speak: Examining the Impact of Race, Culture and History on the Body, Mind and Sprit.” Because this event is taking place at the close of Women’s History Month, we will feature a panel of powerful Black women that specialize in behavioral health and emotional well-being in the African-American community.
