“Being a part of this reemergence of a movement both pro-diversity and pro-woman is the best part of being a Black girl…”—ABC-TV’s black-ish star, Yara Shahidi, in ESSENCE
In ESSENCE’s first-ever “Black Girl Magic” February 2016 issue, the mag presents three covers celebrating young women who embody the spark and shine that exists in every Black girl: activist Johnetta Elzie, “Chi-Raq’s” leading lady, Teyonah Parris, and black-ish co-star Yara Shahidi.
