Black Women Grace September Covers of Four Major Magazines

magazine-covers

Black women just so happen to bless the covers of four major magazines’ September 2015 issues…and it’s not even black history month.

Beyoncé, Kerry Washington, Serena Williams and Ciara appear on the covers of Vogue, Self, New York Magazine and Shape respectively.

September issue is traditionally the biggest and highest-selling issue for American monthly magazines with the largest number of ads heading into the fall season, notes TheWrap. For example, Vogue’s September issue features 832 pages.

“With any black celebrity your color is no longer black. Your color is green,” magazine analyst Samir Husni told TheWrap. “They transcend race. For example, Serena Williams is not just playing tennis for black Americans.”

“This marks magazines continuing their role of reflecting society,” Husni continued. “The more celebrities attract a wide audience — black, white, hispanic — the more we are going to see them on the cover of magazines.”

The $2 billion gets whittled down to $450 million after taxes and expenses. That would reduce his debts almost nothing and in the years to come the estate will see healthy profits.

Jackson made sure his three children were well taken care of financially. They each receive a significant amount of money as they get older. If the estate was liquidated today, Paris, Blanket and Prince would each get $100 million.
