This group of friends from Chattanooga, Tennessee is also a mix of newbie and experienced festival-goers. In fact, it was the group's veteran festival attendee, Theresa Davis, who inspired her girlfriends Valerie Leslie and Candace Featherstone to join her this year.
Theresa: They've heard me talk about it so much because I've been several times. Everytime i come, it's such a good experience. Where we're from, we don't have a lot of entertainment for people of color so we like to come here and see all of the positive black people at the Convention Center and the concerts.
