Google At Essence Festival 2017 In New Orleans

July 9, 2017

Google made a big splash over the weekend with three signature events all hosted at The Chicory: a Women’s Entrepreneurial Luncheon (Harlem fave 135th Street, CEO Shante Bacon served as one of the speakers) at the Essence Festival 2017 in New Orleans.

The Luncheon was a “Big Easy” Business Mixer hosted by radio personality Angela Yee, and a Black Women’s Leadership Dinner which featured an appearance by Chance the Rapper and a performance from Solange‘s new neo-soul group “Ladies of King.”
