The magazine includes 23 short profiles alongside contributions from Leah Aden, deputy director of litigation for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund; Nicole Hanson, executive director of Out for Justice and Martha S. Jones, author of VanguardHow Black Women Broke Barriers, Won the Vote and Insisted on Equality for All.
