July 5, 2019 (New York, N.Y.)—ESSENCE, the number one media, technology and commerce company dedicated to Black women, and Coca-Cola® have partnered to launch an inspiring campaign highlighting the power of friendship and sisterhood entitled, If Not For My Girls. The multi-platform campaign will feature real-life friends LeToya Luckett, Keri Hilson and Eudoxie Bridges—who will share how their own incredible bond helped to serve as a strong foundation in each of their lives.

The campaign kicks off with a four-part video series that will live on ESSENCE’s Facebook Watch platform. Throughout the series, viewers will see real-life friends from all walks of life who will engage in celebratory and uplifting conversations about the power of friendship between Black women. They will touch upon a range of topics including: the support of friends in times of need; coaching you when preparing for a new job or business opportunity; and more. ESSENCE is excited to partner with Coca-Cola® on this initiative, as the brand has always been a part of special moments of connection among friends and family.

In addition to the web series, the campaign is featured in the July/August issue of ESSENCE and will be touted across the brand’s social platforms.
