EVENT: "Fashion in Action" Panel Takes a Trip to Post Racial USA

Esther Armah, Michaela angela Davis & Isolde Brielmaier, Invites you to talk progress, power, presence, diversity in the world of publishing and media. Friday September 17th at 6pm Hosted by The Institute of African American Affairs New York University 41 East 11th St. at University Place 7th floor

This Fashion Week marks powerful firsts.

The presence of a range of black beauty on the covers of Elle and Vogue. The image of blackness flourishes, but how is the presence of diversity in the publishing world? We take the pulse of the industry. We ask which magazines have hired, who have they hired and what does that reveal about diversity in post racial USA? Black women may adorn mainstream magazine covers, but, there are no black people holding the top position of Fashion Director at any major magazine. What do you say that means for the fashion, beauty, lifestyle media in post-racial America?

Join us for this critical, community conversation.

This is about your voice.

Come. Be Heard.
