Oakland women (and ex-San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown) ruled the day.

Macksmack reporter Khristan Antoine covered the first annual Delilah Beasley Tea last Saturday.

It was hosted by Progressive Oakland Women for Empowerment and Reform, or POWER in the gardens of the historic Pardee Home Museum, 672 11th Street, in Oakland.
Richelle Lieberman, a member of POWER and co-chair for the event, came up with the idea for a tea.

The event had three purposes: to honor Delilah Beasley, the first African American woman published regularly in a major metropolitan daily, The Oakland Tribune, to welcome a chapter of the Girls, Inc. organization to Oakland and to give a lifetime achievement award to longtime television journalist Belva Davis.
