Noted writer and culture critic, Michaela Angela Davis, allows PYNK mag to get up close and personal with her for the latest installment in the Watch Her Work series. The former magazine editor and celebrity stylist, discusses her childhood struggles with her hair and reveals that growing up blonde was not fun for her.
“This blonde did not have more fun,” she says. ”Because I was a black girl.”
Davis goes on to describe her first encounter with Susan B. Taylor and how that changed her perspective as a black woman in fashion. She also delves into why she believes that now more than ever women of color need to embrace themselves and recognize their influence on popular culture.
An image activist, Davis, is committed to working on “expanding the narrow narratives of women.” In the interview, she discusses her frustration with reality TV shows that feature women of color in conflict and the message these shows send to other women and the youth.
