My fav magazine Essence has created a double issue dedicated to Black hollywood movers and shakers.
"Honoring women, one magazine cover features recent Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson along with this year's nominee Ruby Dee. Actresses Paula Patton and Kerry Washington are also joined by film producer Tracey Edmonds, film director Kasi Lemmons, talent agent Andrea Nelson Meigs, former Motown Records exec turned television veteran Suzanne de Passe and superpublicist Marvet Britto."
"For the homage to the men, Academy Award nominated thespian and producer Don Cheadle graces the cover, along with a gate-fold featuring power brokers such as film producer and talent manager James Lassiter, TV One chief Johnathan Rodgers, movie agent Charles King and entertainment legend Quincy Jones." more info http://www.essence.com/essence/
