Ever wonder why you don’t see women who look like us on the covers of Vogue?? Well we do. Especially after we broke the news of Keija Minor, the newly named Editor-in-Chief of Bride’s magazine, earlier this week.
While we were over here giving her a shout out, we were also struck by the staggering fact that she’s the FIRST Black Woman to ever hold the position down at Condé Nast. Ever! The publishing empire that owns 18 magazines in total, (think Bride’s, Vogue, and GQ, just to name a few), has been in the business for 103 years! So it took over a century to finally have a well-qualified African American run isht.
To show you a lack in progress…hit the flip and check out the awful pattern of Black Women gracing the cover of Vogue magazine (another Condé Nast publication)…
They should be ashamed of themselves…but they probably don’t even think twice about it.
