Here's what some 2010 attendees had to say about this event:
"I haven’t felt special like this, for a very long time, probably never in quite this way. There was music, dancing, testimonies, storytelling, singing, poetry, food, and yes of course shopping too… and all just for us - Women of Color, in honor of us, our role, our health, state of mind, and most importantly our perspective and walk into the future. It was A Call to Women of Color Social Gathering."

"This wasn’t my first invitation. I finally made it, and will not miss out again. I hope to bring my daughters and my sister next year. I want them to feel what I felt, learn what I learned, get refreshed and ready to tackle whatever lies ahead in life, empowered with the strength and words from peers, fellowship, faith and the encouragement of women who can relate to their experiences as Women of Color."
