Solange Inspired These Chicago Women to Launch ‘Black Girls Break Bread’

Three women have created an initiative to bring more young black women to the table. Literally.

Jessica Davenport-Williams, 35, Jazzy Davenport, 28, and Khadija Warfield, 35, founded Black Girls Break Bread, an organization based in Chicago, after the three of them agreed that they felt like there was a need for more safe spaces in their community where young black women could engage in intellectual discourse and uplift, empower, and inspire each other no matter what age.

Last October, Jessica and Jazzy were planning a sister retreat for themselves where they could relax and bond. When Davenport-Williams announced her eagerness for their retreat via Facebook, Warfield commented that she thought they should make a similar event and open it up to their friends and women in their community.

After discussing different ideas together, the conception of Black Girls Break Bread began and they decided to launch an Eventbrite the next morning for 20 tickets.
