Black Women Magic (Part 2 LIVE from Power Rising in Atlanta, GA)
In part two live from the Power Rising Summit in Atlanta, Georgia, Michele and Daniella speak with fashion editor, social influencer, and president of The Tai Life, Tai Beauchamp, and Kristi Henderson, founder of Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network, about what it really looks like for black women to support each other well and why the extra baggage they carry in their personal lives often makes succeeding in a professional environment that much more difficult. Luvvie Ajayi, New York Times bestselling author of I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual joins to discuss why the dumpster fire political scene of 2017 was a good thing for black women and why they cannot lose this moment. Then, Vanessa K. De Luca, editor-in-chief of Essence Magazine, discusses the ways that culture has helped black women be more of their authentic selves in the past few years.
