South Shore group concerned Michelle Obama initiative will cause confusion


Michelle Obama's blockbuster announcement of her "Global Girls Alliance" last week earned praise from across the globe, but one South Side group is concerned that spotlight could leave their good work in the shadows. Accordording to WGN-TV, The South Shore-based nonprofit Global Girls Inc. has been around for 18 years, working with young Chicago women to develop their skills in the performing arts. Obama's announcement of the Global Girls Alliance caught Global Girls Inc. Executive Director Marvinetta Woodley Penn off guard. “I started seeing the emails and Facebook posts and people congratulating me. And I was like, 'no ... I’m not a part of this,'" Woodley Penn said.
