Television’s first Black female superhero is bringing her real life powers to NYC. Simone Missick, who stars as Misty Knight on the hit show Luke Cage, will participating in EDEN BodyWorks’ Unleash Your Inner Shero series created to help us tap into our own superhero powers. Led by In Her Shoes Blog founder Renae Bluitt in a sit-down conversation, she will share her journey from Detroit to Hollywood and her seemingly overnight success, what inspires her and how she’s working to change lives.
“Without the women who came before me, those who encouraged me to stand in my truth and be my full self, I would not be the shero I am today. I hope to inspire the same in women and young girls all over the world,” said Simone.
Unleash Your Inner Shero takes place November 5 at MIST Harlem in NYC. Guests will enjoy light bites and beverages as well as receive a complimentary gift bag filled with EDEN’s best sellers ($30 value). All event proceeds will be donated to the event’s non-profit partner, Petals-n-Belles, a New York City-based 501(c)(3) social development organization that empowers girls with creative workshops, real-world experiences and academic coaching.
