MSNBC's presence at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, from which the news network offered live broadcasts by its African-American and white anchors alike, is a sign of the channel's commitment to "diversity and real inclusion," writes Pepper Miller. "MSNBC doesn't opt for the 'sprinkling' of diversity," Miller writes. "On any given day, viewers are exposed to journalists, business experts, political analysts, scholars, academics and authors who are brilliant, well educated and well spoken, but who are also a diverse group based on race, gender, lifestyle and religion."
