Group shot 1Today’s Music, Fashion, Art & Tech Visionaries Share Their Personal ‘Never stop. Never settle.’ Stories in Celebration of Black History Month

Hennessy, the world’s best-selling Cognac, celebrates Black History Month with the launch of WE ARE  – a powerful four-part content series highlighting the stories behind today’s trailblazers, meant to empower the next generation. For more than 250 years, Hennessy has shared the remarkable stories of extraordinary individuals and continues this tradition today with its WE ARE platform. 

WE ARE CREATORS  – the first video in the series – launched today and features hip hop artist A$AP Ferg; fashion designer Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss; DJ and son of Jam Master Jay, TJ Mizell; and vintage designer Sami Miro. The five-minute video brings viewers into a candid conversation about the importance of art as a platform of expression, and how each artist uses their medium to push the limits of potential.

In addition to the debut WE ARE CREATORS video, Hennessy will release additional content throughout February celebrating other influential voices of today.

WE ARE DISRUPTORS: Musician Kenneth Whalum, co-founder of LISNR Rodney Williams, celebrity wardrobe stylist Rachel Johnson and co-founder of Driven Society Travis Weekes discuss how their individual efforts and organizations are aiding in economic equality and education within the African American community.

WE ARE AMBITIOUS: The series will culminate later this month during an intimate event in NYC where select participants will come together for a live discussion that puts a spotlight on the importance of ambition in building an enduring legacy.
