Jodie Turner-Smith Graces Cover of Ebony's April Issue

Actress Turner-Smith was born in the U.K. to Jamaican immigrants who made sure that, even in a small English city with few other Black people, she stayed connected to her culture. “I lived in a village called Coates, and we were the only Black family there,” she says.

Donald Glover Graces Cover of GQ’s 2nd Global Creativity Awards Issue


Donald Glover is one of the most exciting and original voices in Hollywood, a writer turned comedian turned rapper turned actor turned P-Funk All-Star turned showrunner turned farmer. He named his nascent company after Gilgamesh, the mythic Mesopotamian hero who angered the gods. “Gilga is like Erewhon for culture,” he says, referring to the high-end California supermarket. “I want to work with the best people in every medium. To work toward sustainable output. The culture we’re getting from our phones is not high quality. It can be really good sometimes. And fun. But not necessarily high quality. Gilga is the filter for all of that.”

Precious Lee, who appears on British Vogue’s April 2023 cover alongside her friends and fellow supermodels Paloma Elsesser and Jill Kortleve, has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the industry since her runway debut in 2017. “My mother called me a supermodel from the beginning,” Lee says in the cover story. “Even when we were sitting in a waiting room at a casting with dozens of other girls, I was her super. Back then, I’d get annoyed with her. ‘Supermodel’ wasn’t a word I’d use to describe myself, even once I started ticking off the boxes.”

Dominique Thorne Graces Cover of Teen Vogue's New Hollywood 2023 Issue

As an actor who has become known for her almost exclusively Black filmography — If Beale Street Could Talk, Judas and the Black Messiah, Wakanda Forever — the irony isn’t lost on Thorne that the films that first shaped her taste as a storyteller are severely lacking in melanin.

"There's just a whole bunch of fun, new, different, exciting things coming out that are pushing us to do more.”
