Team ESSENCE is closing out one decade and ushering in another with divine purpose and immense pride in our heritage. In support of our continued mission to foster cultural ownership and economic collaboration, the first-ever ESSENCE Full Circle Festival has officially launched.
ESSENCE Full Circle Festival partners include SheaMoisture, Microsoft, Conservation International and the Office of Diaspora Affairs.
Day 1 of the inaugural global Festival kicked off with a bang, as a select group of U.S. entertainers, influencers and business executives touched down in Accra, Ghana to begin a full week of experiences in celebration of the Year of Return. Upon landing in Accra, the EFCF group was greeted with a traditional Ghanaian welcome celebration.
After settling into their hotel suites, the group made their way to the Labadi Beach Hotel for the Beach Polo Club welcome event. The evening began with cocktails and and a delicious dinner, before ending with a beautiful poolside fireworks show.
Needless to say, the 2019 ESSENCE Full Circle Festival is officially under way! Be sure to follow our ESSENCE social media pages for real-time videos and photos as our group celebrates the Year of Return with a week full of life-changing activities in Accra.
