Naomi Sims

On August 1st the art, media, and fashion community lost another ground busting figure. Naomi Sims, who held the title of “The First Black Supermodel”, passed away from cancer. Sims was 61. She will forever be cherished for breaking down racial barriers in 1968 when she appeared on the cover of Ladies Home Journal. This was a defining moment in the “Black is Beautiful” movement of the time. After Ladies Home Journal, Sims went on to appear on the covers of Life, Cosmopolitan and Essence.
