ESSENCE Scholars Program
For 35 years, ESSENCE has been the only magazine dedicated to reflecting Black women and their lives. That mission has not changed. It has, however, evolved along with the women for whom the magazine exists. Today’s ESSENCE speaks to a reader who is defined not by her age or income by her mind-set. Rather than addressing her as a woman with one interest, one style, and one perspective – we see her and speak to her as multidimensional. Time Warner Inc. acquired full ownership of ESSENCE Communications in 2005.
