Black Fashion: A Blast to the Past

JET, Essence, Ebony, Right On!— these major publications and more brought topics related to Black entertainment and culture to the forefront in American society. In fact, Ebony Magazine (@ebonymagazine on Instagram), founded in 1945, served as a key galvanizing force during the Civil Rights Movement. That same spirit and force lives on through Gravity Magazine and other growing Black media & entertainment outlets worldwide.


This December, our photoshoot pays homage to the magazines that broke barriers in the media industry, while also highlighting the hair, fashion, and accessories that made each decade fun and distinguishable.


#WEARETHEFORCE


Thank you to the platforms that inspired a generation of young Black creators- @ebonymagazine / @getjetmag / @essence / @rightondigital / @vibemagazine
