Let's talk about black girl magic right quick.
As magazines prepare to roll out the hottest fall trends, several national and international magazines have made the right decision by choosing black women to grace their September 2018 covers, and we can't wait to get these issues in our hands.
Black girls worldwide will be able to see themselves as they flip through the pages; and representation is a big deal. Here are 10 black female superstars gracing newsstands this month.
