farewell, ms. eunice johnson.

maybe my blogging rights should be revoked because i'm a week late on this. pardon me.

eunice johnson passed away last sunday at the age of 93. co-founder of ebony magazine (which she started with her husband, john johnson who passed in '05) she was the creator of the ebony fashion fair, a yearly country-wide fashion tour that helped give exposure to black designers and models and raised a lot of money for many civil rights efforts. she was also one of the first to market cosmetics for black women through her line - fashion fair cosmetics.
