We’re remembering Donyale Luna, the first African-American to appear on the cover of British Vogue in 1966. The 6’2” model also appeared on the cover of Harper’s Baazar in 1965, posed nude for Playboy in 1975 and several films produced by Andy Warhol. She overcame many prejudices during her time. Yet, she was a troubled woman with a beautiful soul, who was described as someone who was “living in a wonderland, a dream” at a young age. She attempted to distance herself from racial controversy and began a bad drug habit. Luna died at age 32 in 1979, leaving behind her young daughter, Dream and a legacy remembered thru Black History.
