Exclusive Audio: New Orleans, Essence Fest and the Future

When Essence announced it would be expanding Essence Festival  to South Africa, I received a lot of phone calls and emails.

“Is Essence leaving New Orleans?”

“This must be the end, huh?”

“Is South Africa, the exit plan out of New Orleans?”

I didn’t have answers.

I tried to confirm  as much information as possible when the news broke.

Graciously, I was granted an interview. Listen to my interview with Joy Profet, General Manager, ESSENCE Communications.
