I am proud to announce that The Cocoa Diaries is an official media partner of In Celebration of my Sisters. The event, which celebrates it’s 20th anniversary this year, has become the preeminent variety show among black women in the UK, providing quality entertainment within the world of music, literature, poetry and comedy.
We feel that this synergy is the perfect fit because just like this outlet, In Celebration of My Sisters is committed to showcasing and celebrating the creative brilliance that resides within the African-Caribbean community, not to mention the reputation it has for providing first class entertainment as well as it’s long and impressive history.
