The two, in an interview with Huff Post Black Voices describe their reason for launching. They felt“there was a void when it came to publications that were really celebrating and edifying black women, not to mention doing so with high creative and aesthetic quality.” Since launching last year, the magazine has amassed nearly 10,000 followers on Instagram, showcasing daily images of beautiful, Black women. Day and Farrar describe the most compelling part of the magazine, as it’s desire to portray Black women not only as strong, but equally as beautiful, something often missing in the media.
Their website highlights CRWN’s missions as follows. CRWNMAG “exists to create a progressive dialogue around what it really means to “go natural” in America. Through beautiful content, thoughtful commentary, hair inspiration and resources; we’re telling the world the truth about black women by showcasing a new standard of beauty — and documenting our story in tangible, print form.” You can pre-order your copy of CRWN Mag here.
