John Legend, Charlemagne Tha God, Remy Ma and More Share Wisdom at CultureCon 2018


If you missed the second annual CultureCon in New York City this year, you definitely missed a whole lot of melanin magic! The event was packed with creatives and entrepreneurs who came together to celebrate and embrace our culture with some of our favorite celebrities and influencers.

Given to us by The Creative Collection NYC, this event was crafted especially for young creatives of color. In an ever changing political and economic climate, events like CultureCon are needed now more than ever.

The conference featured candid conversation with a host of notable people such as EGOT recipient John Legend, Wild N’ Out creator and host, Nick Cannon, co-host of the Breakfast Club and New York Times best-selling author, Charlemagne Tha God, and rapper, Remy Ma.

Attendees were given the chance to hear from successful entrepreneurs, authors, entertainers and more as well as visit some of the event sponsor booths for freebies and networking.

Sponsored for the event included HBO, Dove, Foot Locker, Tequila Avion, BET, Tidal, Lyft, and many more.

Additional speakers included Tyler Mitchell, the first black photographer to shoot a Vogue Magazine cover, radio show host, Angela Yee, activist and author DeRay McKesson, best selling author, Enitan Bereola, and actor Coleman Domingo. Each segment was moderated by leading media personalities such as Taylor Brooks, Eboni K. Williams, Gia Peppers, and Kela Walker, just to make a few.

It goes without saying that black excellence was seen and felt all day long!If this event didn’t empower you and make you want to hustle even harder for your dreams and goals, nothing could! I certainly look forward to attending next year and hope to see you there!
