COLUMBUS, Ga. – Friday afternoon, more than a thousand women gathered at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center to promote unity and empowerment.
The women’s empowerment luncheon was hosted by Davis Broadcasting. This year’s keynote speaker was actress and producer Vivica A. Fox. One of the messages she conveyed today was aimed at young women, saying that she also struggled at that age, but to never give up.
“The main thing for generation x is I have to make sure I have to tell them to pay attention. Because like I said they just swipe and everything’s so easy for them and they forget to pay attention to everything going on in their community and in their country.” Said Vivica A. Fox.
Mayor Teresa Tomlinson presented Fox with a key to the city and U.S. Congressman Sanford Bishop presented her with a framed congressional letter.
