Camille Rose, the gourmet, Black-owned beauty brand held its first-ever 3-day summit on June 18th. The Beauté Noir Festival is a celebration of Black beauty, Black culture, and change-makers within the Atlanta community. The summit, which reimagines the brand’s inaugural Beaute Noir honoree dinner, includes an honoree dinner, VIP brunch, and a first-of-its-kind Juneteenth music festival and summit.
“As a Black-owned beauty brand, it’s important to recognize that our community would not be where it is now without our ancestors paving the way,” said Janell Stephens, CEO, and Founder of Camille Rose. “While there is still much more to be done, certifying Juneteenth as a federal holiday is a step in the right direction, and we are celebrating the beauty of black culture and its influence on the world.”
