The Immortal Regina King a work of art! Essence Magazine recently unveiled its December holiday issue, Black Masterpiece photograph to perfection by New York base photographer, JD Barnes. This cover bears the signature of black excellence, poise and sophistication only to dive inside for a double, triple compilation of more striking images.
Regina King is Hollywood royalty at the top of her game spanning over a decade. This woman continues to defy the odds on screen and off to define her own legacy without limits. Since my first sighting of her on primetime television as Brenda Jenkins a teen actress on sitcom 227, Regina has proven with no hisitation why she’s the queen on the throne.
Everything about this Cover, I love. It is truly the representation of not Black Girl Magic; but Black Woman Magic, a Masterpiece of fine art!
