Summer Salons: Elaine Welteroth
Elaine Welteroth has climbed the ranks of media, fashion, and storytelling. She was the youngest person ever appointed editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, and in 2012 had been the first African American ever to hold the post of beauty and health director at a Condé Nast publication. To celebrate the release of her timely memoir, More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say), Welteroth discusses her personal experiences as a barrier breaker and advocates for next-gen trailblazers to know they are #morethanenough. Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Eso Won Books.
Presented in partnership with the California African American Museum.
