ESSENCE and the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc. (FFAWN) partnered for "An Afternoon of Inspiration," sponsored by Southern Company. The event, held during the 2010 ESSENCE Music Festival, sought to shine a light on FFAWN and local New Orleans "she-roes" doing work in their communities. Here's what you had to say: April commented via Facebook: "Kudos to Mary for doing something positive. That's awesome." Joy wrote via Facebook: "More influential women need to step up to the plate and help out our young sisters."
