Susan L. Taylor is an American editor, writer, and journalist. She served as editor-in-chief of Essence Magazine from 1981 through 2000. In 1994, American Libraries referred to Taylor as “the most influential black woman in journalism today”. NAMIC, the national association for multi-ethnicity in communication, celebrated a milestone this year as it held its 25th annual conference in New York city in October. The organization, which works to promote diversity in the media and communications industry, selected Susan L. Taylor to deliver a keynote address and we must say they couldn’t have chosen a better or more inspiring figure.  The Editor Emerita of Essence Magazine and author of the works  ”In The Spirit” and “Lessons in Living” reflected on her own enamored career to communicate lessons about innovation and confidence. Madame Noire stopped in to NAMIC to speak with participants and to hear Taylor’s inspiring speech. Check it out below.
