Join us on October 4 for an intimate and intriguing conversation between distinguished University of South Carolina alumnae Jotaka Eaddy and Marva Smalls for the 2nd annual Coming Full Circle fireside chat.

Eaddy established a movement with the social media hashtag “WinWithBlackWomen” and is bringing this movement home to South Carolina through Coming Full Circle, a series that brings dynamic Black women leaders to campus to reflect on their position of leadership and inspire others to follow their paths.
