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

For ESSENCE Magazine’s first-ever “Black Girl Magic” February 2016 issue, they’re three covers celebrating young women who embody the spark, spunk and shine that exists in every Black girl: Activist Johnetta Elzie , Chi-Raq’s leading lady, Teyonah Parris, and black-ish star Yara Shahidi.

“Being a part of this reemergence of a movement both pro-diversity and pro-woman is the best part of being a Black gir,” Yara says.
