Black Girl Brilliance: Author & Attorney Areva Martin – ‘Every Successful Woman Should Be Doing Something To Help Other Women Get Ahead’

June 8, 2018

The 2018 ColorComm Conference was all about successful and rising women of color coming together to uplift, educate and learn from each other.

I was honored to be chosen as the keynote speaker for this fantastic event! As I shared my thoughts and experiences with the attendees of ColorComm, I emphasized the importance of successful women using helping to foster success among other women on the rise, an important theme of the week-long conference. I encouraged the room, filled with thriving female leaders, to remain committed to being a helpful resource for other women and continue the cycle of reciprocation that helped propel them to success. We can only be our most successful selves by lifting up and encouraging our female colleagues along the way!

HUNDREDS OF BLACK AND MEXICAN FAMILIES FILE RACIAL REPARATIONS CLAIM AGAINST CITY OF PALMS SPRINGS

While promoting an image of Hollywood luxury in the 1950s and 1960s, the City of Palm Springs’ racially restrictive covenants prohibited Black people from sharing that good life or living in white neighborhoods. Instead, Black and Mexican Americans could only build homes in the Section 14 area of the Agua Caliente tribe’s reservation. Then, over a 10-year span from the late 1950s through the 1960s, Palm Springs hatched a plan to demolish Section 14 for the purposes of developing it into more lucrative commercial enterprises. To gain possession of this prime downtown real estate, the city hired contractors to bulldoze the privately-owned houses, often with personal property and belongings inside, and then the city sent the Palm Springs Fire Department to burn the destruction.  Black and Mexican residents were often forced to flee Section 14 with only what they could carry.
