In this high season of Black Excellence, we start our episode in acknowledgment and praise for Beyoncé’s salute to HBCU’s greeks and goddesses at Beychella’s first weekend. Next, a sit-down with Michelle Ebanks, president of Essence Communications Inc, and actress and activist Tessa Thompson (@TessaThompson_x). Both women are leading movements: Michelle’s helming Black Girl Magic headquarters with a vision to super-serve Black women, and Tessa’s fiercely advocating for diversity representation on screen and off through her work as a founding member of Time’s Up. In the spirit of King Bey, we came to slay. #yesgirlpodcast Yes, Girl! hosts: Cori Murray @corimurray; Charli Penn @ManWifeDog; and Yolanda Sangweni @yolizamaProducer: Steven Psyllos @stevenpsyllosAudio engineer: Chiquita Pascal @ChiquitaPaschalMusic: Gold Standard Creative @gscdotnyc
