Memphis, Tenn. – Tell Publishing, Co. will be publicly honoring and telling the stories of SEVEN dynamic women in Memphis at the 4th Annual #HERoineLegacy Honors Brunch and Magazine Reveal. The event will take place Saturday, March 9, 10am to noon at the Alpha Memphis Foundation in Whitehaven. This year’s theme is “Journeying to Destiny Together.”
The c/o 2019 #HERoineLegacy Honorees are shown below. Our covergirl has always been a foremother who helped pave the way for us girls to be amazing today. We sent out surveys for the public to vote on who should be this year’s covergirl and that will be revealed at that brunch. The finalists were Ida B. Wells, Shirley Chisholm, and Wilma Rudolph.
“Recognizing the greatness in others-no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to others- is my gift,” said TJ Jefferson, Creator of the #HERoineLegacy Magazine and Brunch event. “I celebrate women for just being women. We don’t always have it all together and we graciously figure it out as we go along. I need people to see the beauty in our wins but especially in our flaws.”
We have returning hosts Azizah Bashirah (Comedienne) and Jamal Whitlow (Privileged Memphis), who is also the sponsor for the open Mimosa Bar, to keep the program running smoothly. Azizah Bashirah will perform a comedy set that will have us laughing from our gut! The guest speaker is LaShundra Richmond, Founder of the Destiny House, a nonprofit organization that provides practical support for women and children in education/school improvements, business and community outreach ministries.
Last year, it was announced that the #HERoineLegacy Brunch will be an annual fundraiser for The Destiny House. Our goal is to support their first impactful endeavor which will be to open an all-girls charter school in downtown Memphis. It is our hope that this partnership will produce a hub of future honorees.
“We are immensely excited to continue our efforts in partnership with Tell Publishing of celebrating women while preparing our girls to understand the significance of their mere existence,” said Richmond. “The girls we equip and empower today will someday be the women we honor and salute of tomorrow. There is no greater impact than the sowing of those seeds now!”
