Celebrate Africa: A black model on Glamour Magazine

Finally, a black woman is on the cover of Glamour Magazine, the Netherlands. It has probably taken more than 50 issues, before a woman of colour made it to the front page of a no 1 selling fashion magazine.


I took the initiative to send Glamour Magazine, the Netherlands a letter, whereby I made a complaint against the fact that they never put a black woman on their cover. I got a respond from the editor-in-chief. She let me know not to worry. Since then, they dedicate one page to women of colour, with the worst cosmetics tips. They didn’t get my point. The point that I was trying to make is that it is time for the Netherlands to embrace diversity in colour and culture. the United Kingdom has no problem doing this in their publishing, but the Netherlands do.

I won’t complain though. They put supermodel Alek Wek on the Cover and she looks great. Let’s make sure that this is not a one time event, but that it will happen frequently.
