Color Is Beautiful
ABOUT THE L.A. STYLE MAGAZINE "COLOR IS BEAUTIFUL" ISSUE
It is with love and optimism that we share this issue in such a time as this. L.A. STYLE announces our unwavering solidarity for the equality revolution; we join hands and hearts with our sisters and brothers who are oppressed by systemic racism and other injustices occurring due to the color of our skin. As Robert Frost once wrote, “The only way out is through.”
This next issue “Color is Beautiful,” features over 100 public statements from a collection of movie stars, music legends, political figures, sports stars and more who have spoken out for justice. Some of the prominent figures public statements that are highlighted within the issue include: Michelle & Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Venus Williams, Mayor Garcetti, Rihanna, Beyonce, Tyra Banks, and many more.
For the first time in history, in 2019, women of color were crowned in all three major categories: Miss Universe 2019, Zozibini Tunzi; Miss USA 2019, Cheslie Kryst; Miss America 2019, Nia Franklin. We captured the beauty of this history through three individual cover variations of this issue.
Let’s be clear, L.A. STYLE is not interested in a political conversation; this is a bipartisan battle cry for justice. We look to the wisdom of ages in Isaiah 1:17, “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”
Stand with us! In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. “We shall overcome. We shall overcome. Deep in my heart I do believe we shall overcome. And I believe it because somehow the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”
