2015 ESSENCE Fest performer, India.Arie is scheduled to make a guest appearance on tonight's episode of Being Mary Jane. On the episode, India will discuss the beauty of black women as well as issues surrounding the topic which also ties into the premise behind her new e-book, SongVersation: I Am Light.
Starting today, a new part of the e-book will be released every two weeks via India's website. The e-book will touch on the skin bleaching allegations that she faced in 2013 as well as "colorism, misogyny, Twitter trolls and celebrityism." The e-book will culminate with a SongVersation that can only be experienced in New Orleans at ESSENCE Festival during the Empowerment Experience.
