My Black Is Beautiful at the Essence Festival of Culture
Amplifying and Celebrating Black voices + Black joy for P&G’s My Black Is Beautiful
Every Black woman has a unique, inspiring story of how she moves through the world. To demonstrate their understanding of this important truth, P&G wanted to honor her voice in a way that invited her to participate in a broader conversation: Black beauty, Black culture, and Black progress. P&G believes that brands and companies have a significant opportunity and responsibility to make a difference that benefits society and business. – to be “A Force for Good and A Force for Growth.”
Stepping up to help P&G take inclusive and multicultural brand building to an even higher level, we brought My Black is Beautiful back to Essence Festival of Culture; and reminded everyone why the MBIB Booth is the most popular beauty activation.
