Since its inception, the Black Design Collective has produced a major scholarship fundraising event. In 2019, more than 600 guests attended our inaugural gala, and the BDC presented a $10,000 scholarship to a deserving student. The Black Design Collective will host a one-of-a-kind event in October 2021. Join us as we present the 2nd Annual “Pull Back the Curtain,” an evening of entertainment and enlightenment. Guests from around the globe will enjoy the event both in person in Los Angeles and from the comfort of their homes, as we stream the event virtually online.
This year’s event will feature author and fashion guru Marcellas Reynolds and his second book Supreme Actresses: Iconic Black Women Who Revolutionized Hollywood, highlighting Black women who have made a fashionable impact on global culture. Marcellas will sit on a panel alongside several actresses featured in his book. Imagine several fabulous actresses like Regina King, Viola Davis, Lupita Nyong’o, Tracee Ellis Ross, and many more in a lively conversation you won’t want to miss!
Proceeds from the event will go towards the Black Design Collective Scholarship Fund.
