Black Women in Europe™ Blog is a multiple-award winning blog that showcases the lives of ordinary and extraordinary black women living in Europe. The blog was launched in 2006 by Adrianne George and has won or been a finalist for several awards. The blog has expanded into a social network, and a social media group and led to joint ventures and speaking appearances including the Corporate Council Women of Color Symposium in London, the Kwakoe Festival in Amsterdam, and the BlogHer conference in San Francisco.

In 2010 the first Black Women in Europe™: Power List [1] was released on the Black Women in Europe™ Blog naming 58 women in Europe in the categories of business, lifestyle, media, politics, social entrepreneurs and NGOs that exhibit power and influence across Europe.

In 2012 the blog was awarded credentials to cover the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina in the US.

The Black Women in Europe™ blog is a member of the AfroSpear Bloggers Association, and the BlogHer and AGCG Advertising Networks.
