Essence Honors ‘Woke 100 Women’

On the May issue of Essence magazine, it “honors the women who are blazing trails for equal rights and inclusion for Black people in America.” This is a first for the magazine.

The cover will feature influential women like journalists Joy-Ann Reid, writer/producer Shonda Rhimes, and Women’s March co-chairs Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour. It also features appearances from political commentator Angela Rye, author/blogger Luvvie Ajayi, Women’s March organizer Janaye Ingram and social activist April Reign.

The featured #Woke100 are women who are socially conscious in the fight for Black liberation.
