Sisters Like Me: Black Girl Magic at LSUA

What is Sisters Like Me: Black Girl Magic at LSUA? 

All too often, Black women are isolated in higher education settings.  This isolation is particularly evident at predominately white institutions — being seen and felt on administrative, faculty, staff and student levels. Sisters Like Me: Black Girl Magic is an original program, created by the Women's Resource Center and Black Student Cultural Center at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, to address and correct Black women’s isolation by bringing together Black women identifying members of the campus community.  By doing so, Black women prioritized and participated in self-care as a radical and liberating act.  The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Louisiana State University of Alexandria is honored to continue and expand this programming on LSUA's campus to center, uplift and show appreciation for Black women in the LSUA and CENLA community.  

About the Event

Sisters Like Me: Black Girl Magic at LSUA will be an evening of critical conversation, fellowship and empowerment.  This year’s theme was developed by the Sisters Like Me: Black Girl Magic program committee comprised of LSUA Black women identifying students.  The 2022 theme is – I AM: THE POWER OF POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS.
