From the moment we stepped into the sprawling grounds of the festival, it was clear that this was going to be a weekend to remember. The lineup boasted some of the biggest names in the music industry, spanning a range of genres that promised something for everyone. Young Jeezy, Babyface, Jasmine Sullivan, Uncle Luke, TI, Tamia, and Fantasia were just a few of the stellar artists who graced the stage, each bringing their unique flavor and undeniable talent to the forefront and our own Jeff Fox.

The presentation was a powerful reminder of the festival's deeper purpose: to celebrate not just artistic excellence, but excellence in all forms of black achievement and contribution.
