Jaylaan Ahmad-Llewellyn and other Sista Socialites featured in Ebony

Hats off to Ebony Magazine for featuring 29 year old Jaylaan Ahmad-Llewellyn this month as one of its 'Young Leaders of the Future.'

What took you so long??

Fans of this blog will remember that I featured Ms. Jaylaan back in September along with a follow up story on 'What Constitutes Blackness?' due to the scores of emails I received questioning the racial hertiage of The Llewellyn family.

Interestingly enough, Ebony also has a story this month entitled 'Do Light Skinned Blacks Have It Easier?' and Sista Socialites Mellody Hobson and Gelia Assefa-Puck are featured in their 'Colorblind - Interracial Couples' sidebar story.

Hmmm....I get the strong inclination that the power of our Black Socialite Community is reaching places near and far n'est-ce pas?
