Sister Spokesman is a nonprofit event series sponsored by the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder. Now in its 15th year, Sister Spokesman continues to serve African American women in the community with spaces to learn, share, laugh, indulge and encourage one another.
Community events are a part of the Minnesota Spokesman Recorder’s commitment to our readership. MSR Publisher Tracey Williams-Dillard founded the nonprofit Sister Spokesman to address the often expressed need for gathering spaces that cater to and celebrate African American women in the Twin Cities.
The afternoon includes discussion of impactful topics, music, giveaways, shopping, and more. The Sister Spokesman vendor market serves as a commerce hub for Black entrepreneurs to cultivate a consumer base while allowing shoppers to keep their dollars in the community. Our attendance is from 75-100 women every month.
We cannot wait to get back to Sister Spokesman events in the future! In the meantime, we encourage everyone to stay safe and follow the advice of the CDC and other health care professionals during this precarious and uncertain time. Below are a few resources to keep you informed.
