In Hollywood and just the entertainment industry period, there are very few African American actresses that get the recognition they deserve. Often times, the African American women who are glorified in entertainment are not positive influences and don’t represent the race or the culture in a respectable manner. There are few publications besides Essence and Ebony that give a variety African American women a cover page or even an interview.

Yes we have seen Beyonce, Rihanna, Gabrielle Union, and Halle Berry, on tons of covers, but there are so many women in this industry that are constantly overlook. It wasn’t until recently when Arian Simone decided to showcase African-American women in a postiive light who are constantly overlooked because they do not have the star status of Beyonce or Rihanna.

Arian Simon enterprises created Fearless Magazine. A magazine for the fearless woman that focus on fashion, beauty, food, health and faith.  The ladies who cover the first issue are Lauren London, Monique Coleman, Tia Mowry, Tiffany Hines, Naturi Naughton, Kyla Pratt, Jennifer Freeman, and Chyna Layne.

“The Fearless woman is fashion forward, free spirited, and forever fun! She takes pride in her beauty and her community, while still being the life of the party! Fearless profiles positive images of women and men. Our feature stories and editorial direction are designed to inspire and uplift our readers”

This magazine is everything that HerGoodyBag represents. There is a lack of diversity within the industry amongst African American actresses. Roles are not evenly distributed and frankly, I am tired of seeing the same people over and over. I am tired of singers transitioning into the field of acting when there are other actresses who could play certain roles, but they lack star power. I am glad these women are being showcased and hopefully they get the credit they deserve.
