Industry First: 8 September Magazine Covers Feature Black Women

by Taryn Finley Huffington Post Black Voices

Serena Williams, Beyoncé, Misty Copeland, Queen Latifah, Ciara, Kerry Washington, Willow Smith and Amandla Stenberg are serving all of the black girl magic on their respective covers.

For print publications, the September issue is among the most highly-regarded issues of the year and is usually the industry’s most anticipated release.  For at least eight black celebrated women to be recognized on its covers during magazines’ most significant month is not just special, it’s monumental.

Though these eight beautiful covers still don’t signify a completely reformed industry in 2015 — side eye to Allure for using a white model for an afro tutorial —  it’s a reminder that black women shouldn’t go unrecognized.

Take a look at the phenomenal covers below:

Serena Williams in New York Magazine

 

Beyoncé in VOGUE

 

Misty Copeland in ESSENCE

 

Ciara in Shape

 

Queen Latifah in Variety
