You might have grown up hoarding copies of ESSENCE Magazine. Or perhaps your parents always had the publication laid out on their coffee table. Either way, you probably get how huge it is for Orange Is the New Black star and transgender advocate Laverne Cox to grace the cover of the iconic glossy. In the cover story entitled “Channel Changers,” the Emmy-nominated actress appears beside Alfre Woodard, Nicole Beharie, and Danai Gurira and discusses Black women in television. Be sure to grab the October issue of ESSENCE and support our girl Laverne!
