Black Professionals Fab Fridays Presents


"We are each other's harvest; we are each other's business; we are each other's magnitude and bond."- Gwendolyn Brooks 

To kick off Black History Month and celebrate the EVERYDAY beauty and culture of melanin, we invite you to join us for our first 2018 monthly networking social event
Shades of Melanin: Celebrating Culture & Connections.
Black Professionals Fab Friday events are designed to network and bring together black and brown entrepreneurs, professionals and executives, who live and/or work in the Bay Area. This event is for those who are interested in meeting like-minded people with similar or different career backgrounds.
If you have love for the culture and enjoy connecting with other like-minded individuals this where you need to be! Mingle, mix, and enjoy food and drinks, while DJ JustIN  does it big #ForTheCulture spinning soca, reggae, hip-hop, trap, and everything in between that highlights the beautiful #ShadesofMelanin.

Black Professionals Fab Friday's is a networking social event put on by the Oakland African American Chamber of Commerce, 100 Black Men of the Bay Area, National Coalition of 100 Black Women (Oakland Chapter), Oakland NAACP, MOAD Vanguard and Associated Real Property Brokers. Our common goal is to support Black business professionals and entrepreneurs to develop a deeper sense of community.
