On July 3rd, the last day of Essence Fest weekend, we had a final opportunity to explore black businesses and engage in panel discussions hosted by various talent within different sectors of the industry. In addition, the last of the experiences in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center included the Essence Beauty Carnival, Essence Wellness House, Essence Wealth & Power, etc available for viewing and participation. The day was filled with celebration for black beauty, black talent and the endeavors of those who we all know by name and love to cheer for on stage!
Later that evening, performances at Caesar’s Superdome were sure to bring us all the culture we needed. As we praised talents such as headliners, Nicki Minaj on Day 1 and Janet Jackson on Day 2, New Edition was the blast from the past we were all waiting for on the final night of Essence Fest Weekend. Other headlining acts included icons such as The Isley Brothers, The Roots and special guest performances by Lil Kim, Ashanti, Method Man, Kelly Price and more. A festival of culture it was as Essence gave their final remarks closing out the 2022 Essence Fest Weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana.
