Keija Minor Makes History: Named First Black Editor-In-Chief Of Brides Magazine – Blackbride.com

Keija Minor has been named the editor-in-chief of Brides magazine making her the first person of color to ever hold the title. According to The Huffington Post which states the following about the new appointment:

“To put it simply–Minor’s new appointment is major news. CNP, the privately owned company that produces 18 magazines including Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair and GQ, has been in existence since 1909. That’s 103 years that no black editor has ever been named to the top of an editorial masthead at the company–until now. Yikes!”

Like BlackBride.com, there are several bridal publications with black editors including print and online that are doing an excellent job at featuring women of color period. Whether we are sharing all things in the bridal industry, like fashion, photography, floral design, the latest color and wedding decor trends, travel and honeymoon information, or sharing a small business of some sort, and even lifestyle news, we are here making sure that our readership knows what’s out there for brides. We do believe ultimately that it is important for major publications to have editors and writers that represent a variety of nationalities. Keija may be the first editor-in-chief of a major magazine at CNP in 103 years, but she will not be the last.

Best wishes on your new endeavor Keija, we salute you, and we hope to see beautiful brides of color on the cover of Brides magazine wearing gorgeous gowns adorned with gorgeous accessories, and flawless hair and make-up. There can never be too many publications sharing brides of color with brides of color, especially not in a 1.6 billion dollar industry. There is so much to cover and share.l
