"How much wider are our eyes, and how important is it that we use them to see and be seen? How powerful and beautiful are our voices, and how awesome and boundless is the work that we can do when we use them in unison?
Issue 19 is a time capsule, a reflection of the people, the art, the music, and the fashion that we returned to again and again in the past six months. We were emboldened by our icons and idols, those who brought us a measure of hope as the world became more apocalyptic around us. On our two covers are the writer, actress, and director Michaela Coel, photographed in the streets of London by Liz Johnson Artur; and Mary J. Blige as seen by Hood By Air, photographed by Renell Medrano, and in conversation with Shayne Oliver."
