Michelle Obama Joins The Essence Festival Lineup!


The annual Essence Festival has just gotten better because Michelle Obama has joined the lineup!

The former First Lady will participate in a keynote conversation during the 3-day event which will be held in the Mercedez-Benz Superdome in New Orleans July 4th through 7th.

“As inspiring and aspirational as it is relatable, Mrs. Obama’s story – told on her own terms – is a remarkable example and celebration of everyday Black women who accomplish extraordinary things, who confront challenges with courage and truth, and who remind us that all things are possible when we support one another,” Essence Communications CEO Michelle Ebanks said in a statement.

Mrs. Obama is scheduled to appear on July 6th.
