Share the spirit program in Tuskegee

TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) - Former Essence Magazine editor-in-chief Susan Taylor visited Tuskegee.

The Essence of Healing program was in conjunction with the National CARES Mentoring movement started by Taylor. The National CARES Mentoring movement is the most highly regarded and effective brand in the black mentoring arena.

With 57 mentor-recruitment circles throughout the nation, National CARES is addressing the great disparity between the significant number of Black children in need of mentoring services and the relatively few Black adults who are aware of this needed call to service.

Taylor was the driving force behind Essence Magazine for nearly 30 years.
