Brown Girl Collective celebrates BOLD, Brilliant and Beautiful women and girls of African descent by paying homage to our past and acknowledging our present, while preparing for our future. 

Join your host and founder of Brown Girl Collective, Marcie L. Thomas, as she and her guests talk about HIV/AIDS in our community. The Office on Women's Health has designated March 10th as National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, and we must be a part of the conversation, as a disproportionate number of African American women and girls are impacted by the disease.

Listen in as international HIV/AIDS activist Hydeia Broadbent, Deborah Levine of The National Black Women's HIV/AIDS Network, and co-founders of The Red Pump Project, Luvvie Ajayi and Karyn Watkins share their stories, their work and their commitment to serving the women of our community.
