Késhia (PEACHES) Caldwell was a poet, playwright, event organizer, social influencer and proud daughter of New Orleans. She was also the first cousin of Black Out Loud Conference founder, Donney Rose. Her businesses, DivaStating Entertainment and Class Act Ent. were principle sponsors of the inaugural Black Out Loud Conference. Késhia tragically passed away shortly after last year's Black Out Loud Conference and in her honor/memory we are presenting one dynamic visionary with the first ever KÉSHIA 'PEACHES' CALDWELL VISIONARY AWARD of Black Out Loud 2019. This form is to nominate an individual who not only dreams big, but also takes the necessary steps to make their visions come to fruition. Nominations end on July 23rd and the lucky recipient will receive a weekend pass to Black Out Loud 2019 and be awarded at the conference!  CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO NOMINATE A VISIONARY!
