Hosted by Black Women Who Date Interracially

Our positive and progressive panel discussion will explore the topics and issues black women face while romantically involved or being married to a man outside of her race.

“Outside of the new census information about the increasing numbers of black female interracial marriages and its coverage in the press, this panel is for black women to focus on their issues that matter to them.” Says Nikki Doughty, founder of Black Women Who Date Interracially and CEO of Multimixx–An Interracial Dating Events Company “It is now 2007 and many black women still feel they have defend or feel guilty about their choice of mate to the world.”

The panelist for this event encompasses a wide array of media specialists, bloggers, authors, a comedian and interracial relationship activists.

They include:

Wendi Muse - the Managing Editor of The Coup Magazine and a Special Correspondent for Racialicious, a blog about the intersection of race and pop culture.

Jacquetta Szathmari – a New York based writer and comedian and a finalist in National Geographic's Comedy of Travel Contest. Ms. Szathmari appeared in the NYC Underground Comedy Festival and was a Project Breakout Finalist.

Sam Cacas – Writer, author of BlAsian Exchanges, a novel, Activist and co-moderator of the Yahoo! Discussion group PowerCouples_AMBW (Asian men, Black women).


The panelists were selected for the back grounds as well as their also deep convictions toward interracial relationships. "Zora Neale Hurston once wrote that one of the lessons one must learn is 'to live life for one's self.' As we continue to integrate with each other in this country, it is important that all as aspects of the interracial relationship community be appreciated including BlAsian relationships," said Sam Cacas, author of "BlAsian Exchanges, a novel".

Author, media personality and President of the New York chapter of the National Association of Black Female Executives in Music and Entertainment Erika J. Kendrick weighs in "If we are lucky enough to find true love on our journey through life, then it is our responsibility to nurture and sustain it; for love, as with life, is not promised us. The pigment of the packaging of the greatest gift that we can ever receive is no longer a deterrent for many of us, but it is only through adept acceptance and comprehensive understanding that we are able to broaden our perspectives, expand our parameters, and open our minds and hearts to a colorblind reception. After all, LOVE is waiting; you shouldn't be!"

The panel will be held on Saturday November 3rd (Saturday) from 1 to 4pm at Ripley Grier Studios, 520 Eighth Avenue. The cost for attending is $20.
