The Panthers were on the Parkway for Brooklyn Museum’s monthly Target First Saturday, a free social event offered every month with a different theme. In honor of March being Women’s History Month, the lineup for the evening was centered around women’s empowerment portrayed through films produced by women, the Harriet Apothecary Healing Circle, a performance by Colored Girls Hustle, musical performances by Alissia & The Funketeers, and more! The museum’s current exhibits were also open to the public.
In true Panther Spirit, this was a fun and educational outing that spread awareness of the various contributions of creative women to eclectic art throughout history. As it is most Saturdays, the museum was bustling with a diverse crowd drawn to the variety of activities designed to satiate everyone’s interest; including their appetite with the BKM Cafe.
Most importantly, the FIU Greater New York Panther Network was in the building. First attendees to arrive were greeted by FIUNYC leaders Cedric Bess, president, and Helyett Harris, vice president, and received an official FIUNYC baseball t-shirt, courtesy of GEICO!
The Target First Saturday Panther Meet Up is just one of many activities that your Greater New York Panther Network hosts throughout the year to keep Panthers connected and to enjoy a variety of social, volunteer and educational activities here in the Greater NY area.
