Throughout the month of February, Hennessy has celebrated Black History Month with its WE ARE content series. The cognac brand held four panels featuring today’s music, fashion, art & tech visionaries, and all of them shared their takes on the future of content creation from their unique perspectives.

“I have always challenged myself to give 100 percent in everything that I do – to always strive and prosper – to never settle,” said A$AP Ferg during the first panel discussion. “I am excited to work alongside Hennessy to inspire a rising generation of talent to do the same.”

Last night’s discussion, WE ARE AMBITIOUS, featured panelists sharing the importance of being driven while pursuing dreams. Hennessy, of course, provided cocktails throughout the night, and guests were invited to stay and party to the sounds of TJ Mizell. Check out a gallery from the event below.
