Actress Nia Long is gracing the latest (Nov. 2009) edition of Essence Magazine. In anticipation of the release of Chris Rock’s “Good Hair” documentary, Nia, who stars in the film, takes part in a round table discussion with singers Solange Knowles and Ledisi, TV personality Tanika Ray, hairstylist to the stars Ursula Stephen and writer/producer Tonya Lee. The article is titled “The Root of the Issue” and to read it in full you can pick the mag up on newsstands now.
In some other quickie Essence news, several of the sistas here at Brown Sista had a little wager going as to who would be next to cover the mag. As many of you well know, Essence’s covers are not known for being very diverse. They basically have about 5 or 6 women who routinely get covers every few months- sometimes several times a year. I bet Nia Long would get the next cover and I was right. There is also a huge discussion going on via Twitter about this topic as well.
To all of you who owe me money… I take Paypal… pay up ladies… LOL.
