It was a girls day out in Harlem as Angela Simmons hosted a beautiful GirlTalk Takeover event at a neighborhood Boys and Girls Club on Wednesday, July 29, 2015. Diggy Simmons, Mo’ne Davis and Justine Skye came out to support the event.


Angela and her foundation’s partner Kerri Levine gave the girls great entertainment, a few goodies and a whole lot of information on health. The women addressed everything from sex education to the importance of fitness during the event and gave attendees large handbags as keepsakes.

Mo’ne Davis was a surprise guest who stopped by to lend support to Angela and empower the girls. “Thank you @monee_011 for stopping by and surprising the girls ! They love you,” shared Angela on Instagram. She also doted on Diggy Simmons and Justine Skye who came out to help with the entertainment aspect of the gathering. “Big thank you to my brother @diggysimmons and @justineskye for coming by,” wrote Angela.

Last year the Boys and Girls Club of Newark was shutdown for a GirlTalk Takeover charity event. “This is my passion,” tweeted Angela after the gathering. “Over these last months my partner Kerri and I put so much work in. I do it for them. Bringing health, fitness, fashion, sex Ed, community activities, performing arts, yoga, glass roots art, self expression, nails, hair, what girls want and need! #girltalktakeover.”
