YWCA camp for girls, Highland Beach Girls, 1930. (Courtesy Smithsonian Institution/National Museum of American History) In 2015, author Nichelle Gainer will release the second edition of her much-lauded coffee table book “Vintage Black Glamour” (Rocket 88 Books), which celebrates the glamour of early 20th century black women through hundreds of archived photographs that Gainer found over the course of 10 years of research. Its impending release comes at a time when a rising generation of black women filmmakers, writers, and directors, like Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay, Mara Brock Akil, Issa Rae and others, has been instrumental in presenting the visual narrative of black women in front of and behind the lens. In the center of documenting black beauty and glamour in its many forms throughout the early 20th century was the Scurlock Studio, the preeminent photo studio for Washington’s black community, headed by Addison Scurlock and his two sons, Robert and George. The collection of images in the book ...

"In what is being seen as a major boost for Saudi women seeking legal advice and help, Bayan Mahmoud Al-Zahran, the first Saudi woman lawyer who was issued license to practice law in the Kingdom, launched the first female law firm for the benefit of Saudi women on Wednesday." Issa Rae! Feeling that her voice and voices like hers were missing from the mainstream when she launched The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl only a few years ago, she is now being recognized by Forbes in their "30 Under 30" list for Hollywood & Entertainment.
