Black Women for Wellness is endeavoring to tell our own story and we need your help...

We have entered into an agreement with Southern California Library and Occidental College. Southern California Library will archive Black Women for Wellness history, our newsletters, postcards, invitations, posters, conference programs, voter guides, manifestos, data reports, our history collected over the last 18 years, since 1997.


If you have BWW stuff - everything and anything - please bring it to our office at 4340 11th Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90008 so we can give it to the library.

We have a short window of time to work with. The students will present our work at Sisters @ Eight on April 8, 2016.

Call us at (323) 290-5955 for more information.
