Condé Nast Announces Keija Minor, Its First Black Editor-in-Chief
Sep 28, 2012 | Comments 0
Condé Nast has landed its first black Editor-in-Chief!
Condé Nast was formed 103 years ago, and they recently named the first-ever black editor-in-chief to one of its 18 publications. Keija Minor is her name, and she now has the top position at Brides Magazine. This is major as she is the first African-American to have this title.
It may not seem like a big deal but in the journalism world it is. Her running a mainstream magazine is opening doors in an industry that is still heavily racially divided.
She gives hope to a lot of black writers and editors like myself who don’t really know where they stand with the ‘Big Dog’ publications.
Keija Minor was a former editor at Uptown magazine and will reign as Editor-in-Chief of Brides magazine. Congratulations to her! It is awesome to see black women doing their thing.
