Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay, Debbie Allen, Mara Brock Akil and Issa Rae Cover ESSENCE’s May Issue

Well let me just put this $25 aside so I can buy about four copies of this on the weekend!  This cover is EVERYTHING!

ESSENCE brought together five of my favorite people for their May 2015 ‘Game Changers’ issue. The cover is simply divine and features Issa Rae, Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay, Mara Brock Akil, and Debbie Allen.

These five women are masterful storytellers who are making great contributions in their respective mediums. These women are bold and unapologetic in their desire to continually push the envelope. They are giving us work that that is multi-faceted, layered and something that we can be proud of. They are the definition of Black Girls Rock and those of you who don’t agree can go sit in the corner. Their work is inescapable and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Not everyone has to like their work but they’re making you respect it.

Kudos to ESSENCE magazine for this cover, this is epitome of Black Girl Magic.  Pick up a copy when it hits newsstands this Friday, 4/17.
