For immediate release
The sudden change of attitudes with President Elect Obama, about to take the
highest office in the USA and become what is regarded as the most powerful
man in the world.
Miss Black Britain has never been more important or prevalent to issues
here in the UK and fashion industry, with a continuous attitude of Fashion houses,
labels and Model agencies flatly ignoring Black Models, Miss Black Britain hopes
to change the attitudes and perceptions of what can only be called a deliberate
white wash of Mainstream culture.
” If Obama can make president of The United States of America then it is a sign of
changing times, and that we have to move with the times.
If a nation has voted a black man to lead them, then surely they wouldn’t see a black model
fronting a face of a campaign and decide not to buy a product!
There is a constant argument that black models do not sell products to consumers, however
within high fashion nobody has actually tried and tested it!
The same argument was often said that there would never be a black leader in the
western world, however there is one now.”
Aneka Johnson Founder of Miss Black Britain.
