In 2016, Sabrina “Heymiss Progress” Madison quit her job and became an entrepreneur with a single goal.
“When I left my job at Madison College I said, 'I’m quitting to go work for black women,'” she said.
She’s done that as a motivational speaker and social entrepreneur, creating the annual Black Women’s Leadership Conference, Black Excellence Youth Conference and Black Business Expos. Now she’s taking it a step further.
Madison will announce Wednesday the creation of The Progress Center for Black Women, an organization that will put her current projects under one roof and allow her to expand her efforts to empower African-American women and families.
