Happy Black History Month!: Vogue Italia's Black Allure

Black History Month began as "Negro History Week," which was created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian, scholar, educator, and publisher. It became a month-long celebration in 1976. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.

This month Vogue Italia did a spread with ALL black models. *gasps* The spread is exceptional!! Ajak Deng, Chanel Iman, Arlenis Sosa Pena, Jourdan Dunn, Melodie Monrose, Lais Ribeiro, Rose Cordero, Mia Aminata Niaria, Sessilee Lopez, Joan Smalls and Georgie Baddiel all make a statement "We are black models, and we're here to stay!" There is no question to these ladies talent. Take a look....
