Essence Fest 2019: Powerful Black Women Celebrated on Day One

July 5, 2019

The Essence Festival Twitter account said it best. The account asked what was better than one powerful black woman and answered with the obvious. Two!

Essence Fest 2019 is underway, and WPGC's Poet is on hand for all of the events. Here are some of the top moments so far.
