For the May Issue of Essence Magazine the editors have decided to change it up a little by representing five women who are changing the scope of black film and television. This issues’ cover girls include; Issa Rae, Mara Brock Akil, Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay and Debbie Allen-all of which are powerful women in production.
Dressed in all white and as regal as can be, it is clear that the massive growth of black production in Hollywood has become a possibility for our generations to come because of women like this. The May issue will chronicle the lives and times of these phenomenal women as they all get a chance to tell their stories of failure and success in the entertainment business.
This cover is certainly #PYNKGirlApproved and we hope that there are many more spreads like this to come for the future.
