Every year in New Orleans, around the Fourth of July weekend, the Essence Festival brings together hundreds of thousands of people in a multi-day celebration of black women, community, and culture. Among that number: popular stars from TV, movies, and music. Here are a few who stopped by the photo studio set up by Getty Images (which owns FOTO). Pictured: Yvonne Orji of "Insecure."
