"Where are all the black singles?"
"Was it a date or were y'all just kickin' it?"
"Can we discuss something non-heteronormative for a change?"

We've all heard these questions before. But it's not often that we gather collectively to talk about them and discuss what comes next. Join the Wire KC and the Urban League for a candid conversation on the black dating scene in KC with folks from across the metro area.

This event is part of the Wire KC's Stoplight Social Series. All who attend will be given one of three bracelets to wear:
Red: Taken
Yellow: It’s Complicated
Green: Single

This Sunday I will be at Nike KC on the Country Club Plaza with my friends Battery Tour and HillTop Strong Fitness Training to bring you an unforgettable experience. I will host a FREE Nike Movement Class for those who register. Come join us as we kick off our event season this summer!
