If you haven’t already noticed, black women are sort of killing it this September. Kerry Washington, Ciara, Beyoncé and Serena Williams are all gracing the September issue covers of major magazines. The last time this happened was probably never.

Many noticed this takeover earlier in the month before and included Amandla Stenberg gracing the cover of Dazed magazine.

I can’t wait until all these books wise up and start including a wider swath of women of color so that all this stunning beauty at the checkout line becomes a common occurrence.
