The phenomenal woman that goes by the name of Susan L. Taylor is leaving Essence Magazine after being their for over thirty years. Ms. Taylor has decided to devote more of her time to the National Cares Mentoring Movement. I have to admit that this makes me really sad because this lady is Essence Magazine as far as I am concerned, but I can only wish her the best.
Although Essence, which is owned by the Time Inc. division of Time Warner, did not make an official announcement, Ms. Taylor chose to send out word of the change via e-mail.
“I am taking a break in South Africa and will have little access to e-mail,” she wrote in an automated out-of-office message this month. “When I come back to the states in mid-January, I will be leaving Essence to do what at this juncture in my life has become a larger work for me — building the National Cares Mentoring Movement, which I founded as Essence Cares and today is my deepest passion."
