WHO: Katiti Kironde

THE MAJOR MOMENT: In August 1968, Kironde became the first woman of color to ever grace the cover of Glamour magazine. Kironde, who was 18-years-old at the time and an undergraduate at Harvard University, applied for Glamour’s “Top 10 Best Dressed College Girls” competition and won the highest honor. The issue was not only a milestone for the then 30-year-old publication, but it was also the first time that any black women had been featured on the cover of a mainstream women’s fashion magazine in the United States.
