It’s been two years since Essence Fest was a live event. There’s no denying the impact Essence has had on lifestyle, celebrity and culture. Our very own Kandi Eastman caught up with Caroline A. Wanga, CEO of Essence, for a very special one-on-one. In addition to looking back at their Essence Fest experiences pre-virtual, the pair discussed the return of Essence Fest, June 30th – July 3rd, 2022.
