Black Girl Magic Conference


The Fifth Annual Black Girl Magic Conference, which will host 600 Black girls in fourth through eighth grade from Madison, Oregon and Middleton school districts, is back as an in-person event on May 26 at Madison College’s Truax Campus.

This year’s keynote speaker is Kheris Rogers, an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, model, actress, fashion designer and CEO of the widely popular brand, Flexin’ In My Complexion. Born in Los Angeles, California, Kheris started her brand after years of being bullied in school because of her dark skin complexion. Her story has been televised by NBC, CBS, and The Steve Harvey Show; and celebrities including Whoopi Goldberg, Lupita N’yongo, Lena Waithe and Alicia Keys have all sported styles from Kheris’ clothing line. She is the world’s youngest designer to ever showcase at New York Fashion Week and has consulted on a clothing collection for Old Navy.
