Sisterhood

This weekend, our s’mores got the opportunity to attend a brunch called “Keep the Drama on the Stage,” which brought together young women of color to foster solidarity, rather than competition for limited roles in film, stage and television.

Hosted by actress Eden Duncan-Smith, the event was modeled after
Alfre Woodard’s annual pre-Oscars Sisters Soiree, with an aim to “dismantle the casting myth that divides [young Black actresses]: There is only room for one.”

Duncan-Smith tells BET: “I’m tired of people thinking that girls of color don’t get along. The spirit of competition that keeps us from supporting each other also exhausts me,” Duncan-Smith says. “I wanted to support Keep The Drama on The Stage because it would be a first step to humanizing (or sister-izing) us.”

Eden Duncan-Smith has already forged a successful career at age 15, with roles in the film, “Annie,” and the Tony award winning plays Fences, and The Lion King. She is currently in “Meadowlands,” which is debuting at the Tribeca Film Festival this month.

Our flower shaped s’mores on a stick got rave reviews. Maybe there is an award in our future some day too!!
