September is the time of the year in which every page of SHEEN Magazine is inspired by fashion. Better put, September is when we remember that clothing is a part of life. Each and every outfit you choose—whether for work, play, or sleep—is ultimately a reflection of who you are. In our effortlessly chic issue, we pay homage to the fashion connoisseurs and their legacies that have paved the way.

Our inside cover features none other than the fashion shapeshifter herself Misa Hylton, whose iconic styling has been shaping pop culture since the early 90’s, influencing the looks of Lil’ Kim, Mary J. Blige, Foxy Brown, and Missy Elliot. 

“I create to create, not for it to be big, and maybe that’s why it ends up being big. I create from the heart, and it’s just about art for me—fashion is storytelling through wardrobe, and I love to tell stories.”

Erica Campbell, Vickie Winans, GooGoo Atkins, Roland Martin & More Attend ‘We’re The Campbells’ NABJ Screening (PHOTOS)

Hello World,

I wasn’t able to attend the 2018 National Association of Black Journalists Convention & Career Fair held in the city just a few days ago, but I felt like I was there from all of the pics that people have posted. To that end, see some photos from TV One’s screening of We’re The Campbells during NABJ 2018 as well as images of Erica Campbell hosting the 2018 NABJ Gospel Brunch. As a reminder, TV One’s “We’re The Campbells” airs Tuesdays at 8/7C!

According to the NABJ recap I received, the #NABJ18 convention wound to a close Sunday morning with a rousing blend of gospel, a movie preview and recognition of individuals who have impacted others.

Sponsored by Motown Gospel and the movie “Beautifully Broken,” the recently regrouped NABJ Gospel Choir sang “You’re Amazing,” before stirring performances were delivered by Lexi, Vickie Winans and others.

The brunch also included the presentation of the Angelo Henderson Community Service Award to WDIV-TV Anchor Rhonda Walker and the award for Educator of the Year to Alicia Nails, the director of the Journalism Institute for Media Diversity.

OWN Releases Extended Trailer For ‘Greenleaf’ Ahead of Two-Night Premiere One Month Away!

Hello World,

As of today and yesterday, the debut of the third season of OWN’s “Greenleaf,” what will surely be drama of Biblical proportions, is one month away! Yes, chile, on Tuesday, August 28 and Wednesday, August 29( a two-night premiere) it’s going down and up! The drama will be getting down (and dirty I suspect) and I will have to go up to the Father to understand and recap it all. LOL. Well, in anticipation of the season opener, Oprah and her team at OWN have released an extended “Greenleaf” trailer for us to snack on while we wait on the sumptuous feast of faith folded into folly that will be served up in a month!

See it below:

So here are 7 things (although there are many more) we can expect from Season 3 as demonstrated by this trailer:

  1. Rochelle Cross is still coming for the First Lady spot and she.won’t.. stop…
  2. Lady Mae is showing up for the battle for Bishop and more with her “dear friend” Pastor Maxine Patterson aka Patti Labelle…
  3. Ms. Patti “On-My-OWN” Labelle (Move over Le’Andria) will be blowing up Season 3’s soundtrack…
  4. Grace, however, may be taking over as head pastor of Calvary World Ministries or maybe it’s Lady Mae…
  5. Grace & Lady Mae duel in the ultimate showdown…
  6. True to her name Tasha Skanks, who is likely conspiring with Rochelle, sets her sights on Jacob, the “reformed” cheating husband and Charity comes apart per usual but this time because Kevin has come back…
  7. Tax evasion may be the tool to take down all the Greenleafs when it’s all said and done…

I’m not in full recap mode yet because I’m still resting up till then, but trust I will be on Aug. 28 and 29. It’s going down…and up….

Any thoughts?
