In celebration of African History Month (read: Black History Month), STYLE 101 decided to do something different. We are steadily breaking away from the 'exclusive' targeting of Historically Black Colleges & Universities, moving towards a more diverse & multi-cultural audience, and in doing so, we've decided to dedicate 1 issue to the Pan-African trials and triumphs within the fashion industry, every year.
For our inaugural issue of the 'Color of Style,' we chose the fabulous Ms. Katie Rost as our cover girl. Not only does she embody beauty and brain, but she also embodies humility, grace and versatility... one of the many characteristics that have enabled the African race to endure and achieve for so long.
We invite you to enjoy the offerings of this special edition of STYLE 101, and as we are still living a part of history, right now (with President Obama), we believe that our move is a step in the right direction!
God Bless Us All,
Avon L. Dorsey II.
