In honor of Black History Month, the latest issue of PLUS Model Magazine features beautiful black plus-size models on the cover.
There’s also a great quote by supermodel, Iman:
"The absence of people of color on the runways and photography reinforces to our young girls that they’re not beautiful enough, that they’re not acceptable enough."
I think that quote applies to a lot of different people: black, fat, old, disabled, the list goes on and on. But I’m glad things are (slowly, but surely) changing, and it’s great to be seeing a lot more diversity on runways, magazine covers, and ads.
So, check out “The Black issue” of PLUS Model Magazine HERE and happy Black History Month!
