Special Announcement | Black Women Roc! Campaign 2018

We are thrilled to announce our

2018 Black Women Roc! Campaign

Today is the official launch of our June 2018 Black Women Roc! Campaign

All month long we will spotlight the accomplishments of local black women who are change agents in the Rochester community.  Here on the website and across our various social media platforms we will highlight their stories and contributions to the Rochester community.

Additionally, 540WMain HQ will feature classes and workshops taught by black women (and men) that are rooted in subjects that are important to black women and members of the black community

These spotlights will happen weekly and include four main interviews featuring local black women including:

  • Tianna Manon
  • Prudence Anderson-Leusch
  • Natalie Shepard
  • Phyllis Jackson
