Forgotten but Still Here...Fearless magazine celebratesYoung Women of Color in Hollywood but where is Gabourey Sidibe?

Top to bottom:Tia Mowry, Lauren London, Natori Naughton, Monique Coleman, Jennifer Freeman, Kyla Pratt, Tiffany Hines and Chyna Layne

Vanity Fair caused a big stir earlier this year when they released a magazine cover talking about young actresses coming up in Hollywood but left out women of color. People like Gabourey Sidibe and Zoe Saldana were even left out and they had bigger years than some of the actresses that were featured. So Fearless magazine did a cover about young women of color in Hollywood but again Gabourey Sidibe was left out. Jennifer Hudson was even left out of the equation. However I like the cover and I like the fact that they did this issue to bring light to the situation.
The cover features eight women some new and some old on the cover. This is the premier issue for the magazine which is published by Arian Simone. This is her response to the Vanity Fair cover even though I think she left out some key people, she did a great job with this. I am definitely liking the magazine and I will continue to follow it.
