Black Girls Code meet and greet in Memphis

The Memphis Chapter of Black Girls Code is holding a meet and greet next week to share details about its upcoming workshop in Memphis about the ways the chapter hopes to make a splash in Memphis.

The reception will be from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Benjamin Hooks Central Library, 3030 Poplar Ave, on June 19th. During the event, the public will have the opportunity to engage with group members, discuss the mission of Black Girls Code and learn how to best support the group’s upcoming events and activities.

Black Girls Code was established in 2011 by Memphis native Kimberly Bryant, and in 2012, its first full year of programming, the initiative was able to touch the lives of more than 800 girls in 16 cities around the globe.

The purpose of the group is the increase the number of women of color in the digital space.
