Go behind the scenes with Michael B. Jordan, Queen Latifah, Lisa Nichols and more.

Packed wall to wall with this year’s top products and celebrities, the ESSENCE Festival left us completely shook. Check out some of our favorite moments from this year’s festivities.

Actor Michael B. Jordan gave a shout-out to his “sheroes” on a special recording of Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast.

You told us how #BlackGirlsDo, and we used your words to light up the New Orleans skyline.

You sampled products made just for you, like the Gold Series collection and the Royal Oils collection.

We hung out with all-star influencers, like best-selling author Lisa Nichols, at an intimate dinner.

We cracked jokes with comedians Loni Love, Lil Rel, Jess Hilarious and her boyfriend, Chris.

Entertainment journalist Gia Peppers, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Candrice and Tahira Joy of The Cut Life weighed in on beauty and style.
