Carver High hosts a black female forum

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A panel of prominent women visited Carver High School in Columbus on Friday.

They came to speak to students for this year's state of the black female forum.

Carver's principal Chris Lindsey put the event together for the students as a part of black history month.

A variety of women served on the panel including an attorney, prosecutor, and a woman who used to be an inmate who is now a local business owner.

"It's becoming too open now and the generation and it has a lot to do with social media and like insecurities and hatred within our community," Brandi Philips said.

Divine Martino with Davis Broadcasting was the moderator for the event. This is the second year for the state of the black female forum.
