It’s about high time Hollywood recognize our talented Black actors and actresses. The cover of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue demonstrates what we at JET have known for years: Black power players are here to stay.


The three-fold cover by contributing photographer Annie Leibovitz features 12 Oscar nominees…six of whom are Black! Among the notable celebrities are Idris Elba, Michael B. Jordan, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lupita Nyong’o, Naomie Harris and Chadwick Boseman.
