Editor to Speak on African-American Women's Beauty Perceptions

October 25, 2000 -- Differences in African American women's attitudes and perceptions about beauty, body image and sexuality will be discussed by a cover editor for Essence, a national beauty and style magazine, at the University of Virginia on Thursday, Nov. 2.

The talk, by Essence editor Mikki Taylor, will be held at 6:30 p.m. in Clark Hall 140. Open to the public, the presentation is part of an anthropology course on African American women's self-images and how they have changed over time.

Taylor, a staff member at Essence since 1980, is currently its beauty director and promotes a philosophy of wellness and time-for-self. The magazine reaches 7 million households.

The talk is co-sponsored by the Luther P. Jackson Black Cultural Center and the Department of Anthropology.
