U-owe-it-to-yourself. Set the world on fire !!! J.Dunn
....So in the uk at the moment its Black history month...quote...a remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African Diaspora. It is celebrated annually in the United States and Canada in February and the United Kingdom in the month of October... i think its always good to embrace , celebrate and learn from the past..recently whilst going to top up my oyster card (on my grind...the limo was being serviced?!hmm kay ;-) i saw like at least 4 front black cover models/celebs...which was a lot , probably the most ive seen in a month, i actually have no idea if this coincides with the BHM, also I’ve read conflicting information about editors reluctant to feature Black females on the front covers because of sales , Naomi recently spoke out on the issue but for now, I’m gonna keep it light hearted and post my all time favourite beautiful cover women...credit when credits due! rock on! ..
Liya Kebede..check out www.theliyakebedefoundation.org...she rocks..
Ms Leona Lewis ...loves it!
Janet is radiant here...
One of the first mainstream publication's to feature black women started out back in the 1960's...August 1968 issue belonged to Katiti Kironde, then a college student at Memorial University of Newfoundland..beauty and brains ..
The first black model to appear on the cover of Ladies' Home Journal in 1968, Naomi Sims enjoyed the title of being America's first black "super model."
Vogue's first model was the late Donyale Luna, March 68' she rocked...i love this shot..
Judy Stone described her as: “secretive, mysterious, contradictory, evasive, mercurial and insistent upon her multiracial lineage — exotic, chameleon strands of Mexican, American Indian, Chinese, Irish, and, last but least escapable, Negro.”..since then we've seen an emergence of talented beauties...
