Still filled with the excitement of a very lit Black History Month, the ladies of Take Off Your Cool are bringing that same energy into Women's History Month by sending the girls of Girl Scout troop 5588 to see "A Wrinkle In Time" starring Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon and Storm Reid as the young heroine. "A Wrinkle In Time" is directed by Ava Duvernay ("Selma", "13th") and has similar buzz to that of Ryan Coogler's box office hit, "Black Panther". The #AWITChallenge - a fundraiser to purchase full theaters in various U.S. cities - is buzzing through the social media atmosphere due to the work of Sisters in the Storm, and Lise and Major are joining in on the movement!
What better way to celebrate "Black Panther" and Black History Month than to give Black Geeks something we didn't know we needed, BLACK GEEK WEEK! Join the ladies of Take Off Your Cool as they partner with local organizations and community leaders to provide the best celebration of Black Geekdom Nashville has never seen! From panel discussions to African dance classes to a "Black Panther" red carpet premiere, the local lover of all things nerdy will find an event just for them. Check out all of the events for Black Geek Week by visiting Black Antiquity.
