On March 26, 2019, rolling out presented the “Sisters with Superpowers” awards reception at Atlanta City Hall.

The 12th annual event honored Atlanta-area women who are making an impact in business, technology, law and culture. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms served as the keynote speaker of the event, which was hosted by radio personality and rolling out editor-at-large Rashad Richey.

Bottoms, who appears on the cover of the latest issue of rolling out, congratulated the honorees during her keynote speech.

“I’m just honored to be included with such an amazing group of women,” Bottoms said. “A part of my superpower comes from my husband Derek Bottoms, who is here. I’m grateful to have him as my husband. This magazine cover just blew me away today. The photo was actually taken after the campaign.

“There was an incredible team who helped to put this together. I want to thank you all for being here, and congratulations to you and to all of the honorees. I’m honored to be amongst such a spectacular group of women.”
