Chi- Raq’s Teyonah Parris, Blackish star Yara Shahidi and activist Johnetta Elzie are honorably featured in ESSENCE’s first-ever “Black Girl Magic” February 2016 issue! Three covers, each featuring the above are produced to celebrate young women of this generation who embody the spark and shine that exists in every Black girl.
“Being a part of this reemergence of a movement both pro-diversity and pro-woman is the best part of being a Black girl…” —ABC TV’s Black-ish star, Yara Shahidi, in ESSENCE
Inside the edition you’ll get a lesson from ESSENCE’s “Class of 2016”. This class of young women notorious in fashion, activism, the arts, sports and tech completes their course with an A+. Graduating top of the class is Zendaya, Willow Smith (my daughters favorite) Aja Naomi King, Quvenzhane’ Wallis, Olympian Gabby Douglas, Bree Newsome and more.
ESSENCE’s February issue hits stands Friday, Jan. 8th. Grab a copy- you’ll want to add this publication featuring these spectacular ladies to your daughters collection.
