Afrocentric Essentials

Founded January 2014

I decided to start this group as I'm looking to bring together a small group of black professional women

for authentic and genuine friendships.



It's as simple as that really, but it will be so rewarding, because just having one friend... can

bring you sooo much joy.



As we grow older friendships change, as do circumstances, so our girlfriend circle gets smaller and smaller.. until we're left with that one slightly unreliable friend (you know what I'm talking about!).


So I'm looking to bring together a small group of black or mixed females, on a first come basis, to go out to places of interest - mainly black events, but non black also, wine bars, restaurants, birthdays, holiday & weekends away, cinema, shopping, dancing, jazz festivals anything goes!!


Life is too short to stay indoors wondering.. is this it??



Portland is an amazing city and too fantastic to spend alone, so let's get living and build genuine friendships along the way.
