Essence + Ford = My City 4 Ways ATLANTA

This past Saturday afternoon I had the pleasure of attending the, “My City 4 Ways” event in Atlanta, which is put on by Essence & Ford! The event was a fusion of food, music, lifestyle, and art celebrating Atlanta! Attendees were also given a chance to test drive a FORD vehicle of their choice.


The hosts of the event were Senior editor of Essence Charreah Jackson and MC Lyte. Other guests:

Lifestyle: Kenya Freeman (Designer), Melissa Butler (CEO and Founder of Lip Bar) Milan Imani (Entrepreneur, The New ATL)

Music: Monica, Joy Black (Violinist)

Food: Kelis (Celebrity Chef), Chef Aleem

Art: Melissa Mitchell

The soundtrack for the event was provided by DJ Teknology.

Overall this is a great event to attend for free!! Great networking opportunities, good food (even though I didn’t get a chance to taste any of Kelis food, it went fast) we heard it was really good! So if Essence + Ford comes to your city be sure to register to attend it’s a guaranteed good time for free!!
