News: Constance White Named New EIC of Essence

In case you guys didn't hear the news, Essence has named Constance C. R. White as the new editor-in-chief of the 40-year old magazine. White is an expert fashion editor, commentator, author and journalist. Seems like Essence has made an excellent choice. My loyal readers may remember I spoke with the veteran style maven a little over 3 years ago.

Do you feel as though Essence speaks to you?

Essence gets on my nerves sometimes, but they're like family. I can't quit them.

They do speak to me though. Everytime I go through an issue I feel inspired to be a better me.

And it's like someone told me "take what you like and leave the rest." I don't have to love/agree with every article. I just appreciate it for what it is - an outlet that speaks directly to and celebrates black women.

Like T I just can't quit Essence. I'm lining the idea of Constance White there though. I'm eager to see what she goes with Essence.
Big congrats to her!
