"A Voice for Black Women: 1969-85 Essence Communications grew out of a conference for aspiring African-American entrepreneurs attended by, among others, Edward Lewis, a First National City Bank executive trainee, and Clarence O. Smith, a Prudential insurance salesman. The company that would become Essence was founded in 1969 as the Hollingsworth Group by Lewis, Smith, Cecil Hollingsworth, a graphics consultant, and Jonathan Blount, an advertising salesman, in order to publish the first general-interest magazine aimed at African-American women. Blount was the original publisher; Gordon Parks, a noted photographer and writer and later a filmmaker, was the editorial director." —https://www.encyclopedia.com/books/politics-and-business-magazines/essence-communications-inc
