Finding relevance in irrelevancy

It's the 2016 Essence Music Festival (EMF) Weekend here in NOLA. EMF is the largest African-American festival in the nation. It showcases everything that encompasses what it means to be African-American and gives a platform and recognition to artists that sometime go unnoticed in the mainstream media. This year's EMF brings a new scandal. Multiple white-owned businesses have chose to close during this weekend "due to renovations."
