Memphis: My City, Four Ways

Memphis Essence

MEMPHIS—- When you think of Memphis, most people think of Elvis, BBQ, Beale Street, and the blues. And trust me, we LOVE it! But there’s so much more to my incredible hometown. While we are proud of our food and music, we are equally in love with our people, the soul of the city, its energy, and our Southern hospitality (More on that in this recent post.) And Essence + Ford feel the same way!

ESSENCE magazine and FORD wants to illuminate and celebrate the city I love and adore—Memphis. Next Saturday, November 11, 2017, MY CITY, 4 WAYS will share the food, music, art and style of Memphis. Immerse yourself in a lively fusion of music, art, food and style in Memphis!  ESSENCE® My City Four Ways grants you access to gain tips for navigating your business from Creative Director June Ambrose and Founder of the Vanity Group Karleen Roy.  Indulge in savory creations by Chef D. Arthur and drive any Ford vehicle of your choice. ESSENCE Senior Editor, Charreah Jackson hosts the event while DJ Tootz stimulates the musical atmosphere this year.

Sounds amazing right?!? Oh course it does! So, whether you’re a resident of Memphis or someone who will be visiting this weekend, come on out and enjoy this FREE event. I, along with KP Fusion, Andrea Fenise, and other local bloggers are looking forward to meeting you and enjoying Memphis, My City, in 4 ways.

    I love the entire state of Tennessee. Everyone is so naturally kind and happy. I just wish that the whole southern hospitality thing carried over to the Atlanta area of GA…

    I always think of country music when Tennessee is mentioned. But I’m hoping that this event will highlight so much more and bring more attention to the greatest it hides.

    I did not know anything about Nemphis really until now. How cool that Essence will highlight it. Very cool!

    I’ve heard about Memphis. The combination of these four elements I think would be great. My friend tells the people in this place very friendly. Hopefully, this place will be of much interest because of its beauty.
