Speakers and performers appearing at the ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans July 4th weekend share their definition of empowerment.
Dr. Steve Perry
"Empowerment is about education. You cannot be empowered if you don't have information. What I love about the ESSENCE Festival is that attendees are empowered because they have access to a wealth of information that will enrich their lives." - Dr. Steve Perry, founder and principal of Capital Preparatory Magnet School
