Glamour Magazine not so Glamourous
Here we go again…..
An off-color comment about African American hairstyles made by a Glamour associate editor a few months ago is proving to be a headache that won’t go away for editor-in-chief Cindi Leive. So much so that Leive is planning to address the touchy subject during a roundtable discussion to be featured in an upcoming issue of the magazine.
During the presentation the editor said that “political” hairstyles such as Afros and dreadlocks are a “Glamour don’t.” Several of the African American women in the audience took offense. Since then, the story—which was first reported in the August issue of American Lawyer—has been circulated in the form of a chain e-mail, a Glamour spokesperson says. The incident even led to a segment that aired on NPR.
