Day 15 of Digital Sisterhood Month featured a field trip to see the Mickalene Thomas exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. Digital Sisterhood Network (DSN) founder Ananda Leeke toured the exhibition with six amazing digital sisters: Xenobia Bailey, fiber artist; Liz Calvin, advocate and justice seeker workers; Xina Eiland, President of The Eiland Group and PR professional; Sylvia Wong Lewis, founder of Narrative Network and PR consultant; Patricia Patton, founder of BoomerWizdom.com; and Sanura Weathers, founder of My Life Runs on Food blog. During the field trip, Bailey gave the group a mini lecture on the importance of Thomas’ work. Group members also shared how Thomas’ work impacted their lives, discussed their online and offline activities, networked, shared resources, and purchased hats created by Bailey.

After the museum field trip, Eiland, Leeke, and Weathers enjoyed an afternoon of self-care and shopping in Brooklyn. They went to Seven Nails for manicures and pedicures (located on the corner of Union and Seventh Avenue). They also did some window shopping at several vintage shops including Almost New Vintage Clothing on Saint Marks Avenue.
Eiland and Leeke also visited Eponymy, a boutique in Park Slope, to meet a very special digital sister, Lady Bianca Miller, a French bulldog. As a socialite, model, and arbiter of style, Lady Bianca Miller shares her views on her blog,That’s what B said. She also has a Pinterest page too!
