The creative sector within the African-American community is celebrating the latest installment of the CultureCon one-day event which has become a mainstay of the New York calendar. The October 13 event will take place in Maspeth, New York and bring together many of the most famous individuals in the creative community for speeches, seminars, and fireside chats. One of the speakers at this year’s event is the rapper and media personality, Charlamagne Tha God who has recently branched out into discussing mental health issues within the African-American community.
Charlamagne Tha God whose real name is Lenard Larry Mc Kelvey is an American actor, radio presenter, social media influence, television personality, and producer. In radio, he is a cohost of the iHeartRadio program, which features hip-hop music and the Breakfast Club while in television he is featured in Viacom.
The event is one of the key dates in the New York Fall and is curated each year by The Creative Collective which stated its mission was to develop a one-day event by the African-American community for people of color. Charlamagne Tha God explains he was given the desire to appear at the event by a friend, Rachel Edwards at Viacom who questioned why he was not appearing at the event. The rapper joked his appearance at the 2018 installment of the event would make him cooler among those he worked alongside within the media industry.
The founder of The Creative Collective, Imani Ellis spoke if the pride felt by those who organize and appear at the event about its continued success. In the view of the founder, CultureCon is more than just an event, it is an important experience filled with the energy of individuals who are working to develop African-American culture in the 21st-century. During the one-day event, organizers hope those attending will feel a close connection to the wider community and leave feeling empowered to work as an active member of a community.
