Phoenix Rising: Turning Pain Into Power!!!!
The birth of Phoenix Queens of the Nation Inc. is the story of a shared vision for women empowerment, positive child and youth development, community rebuilding and the preservation of Hip-Hop Culture.
Originally formed as the Phoenix Queens of the Nation: Wisdom Born Zulu Chapter 29 – an all women’s chapter of the Universal Zulu Nation, the 1st Annual Phoenix Queens Meet & Greet took place on November 15, 2014. This very important and historic meeting took place in the Bronx, NYC during Hip-Hop History Month. 22 Women from all over NYC would sign up to join the Phoenix Queens Chapter after that first meeting.
The women who came together to make up the Phoenix Queens Chapter, would go on to implement educational and community service projects. Armed with the knowledge and wisdom they gained as Phoenix Queens members, these women would go on to have careers in politics, education, security services, environmental and social justice advocacy.
