The Brotherhood/ Sister SOL Gala with Rosario DawsonBy Tsadiqwah Scarville | May 25, 2015 | Gals On The Town
“Brooklyn Bound” Tsadiqwah Scarville crosses the bridge to help raise funds for The Brotherhood/Sister SOL.
It was an influential night for The Brotherhood/Sister SOL, the Harlem-based empowerment and enrichment program in NYC that transforms impoverished youth into critical thinkers and leaders through developmental and educational resources. Nearly $900,000 was raised at the organization’s 11th Annual VOICES Benefit, held at the gorgeous Gotham Hall in Manhattan.
The Brotherhood Sister SOL, known for its holistic approach of mind, body, and soul and creating higher vision of self, honored Michele A. Roberts, the first woman to become the Executive Director of the National Basketball Player Association, and Lynn Nottage, the critically acclaimed playwright and Pulitzer Prize winner who often writes about the African women’s experience (and, by the way, she’s a Brooklyn-bred diva, holla!).
It was great seeing actress Rosario Dawson (Men In Black) as one of the first celebrities to show up. She met with Khary Lazarre-White, esq., the executive director and co-founder of The Brotherhood/Sister SOL, who I’m pictured with up below.
