Full of such Black excellence and beauty!

This is the only magazine I’ve bought, and it’s been great to see people who look like me, thriving AND in print I intend to have my future children see magazines, literature, and art by us for us all around them because I never had that privilege; this is a part of a bigger picture! Thank you CRWN.

Love love love...but

I love the LOVE issue. It is an issue that I go back to over and over again in order to drink in the incredible images of Black families loving on each other. The problem, however, is that the representation of families and couples is overwhelmingly heteronormative and cisgendered. Where are the trans, *****, lesbian, *** families and lovers? Where are the non-traditional or extended families and partners? Black love comes in all shapes, sizes and shades and I would love to see CRWN be better and do better at representing the magnificent breadth of our community and the many ways we build, share and care for each other.

impressive, beautifully designed, and empowering content for black people

I don't usually read magazines because they contain lots of fluff and reflect a limited range of the black experience, black beauty, etc., if they feature black people at all. CRWN is unique in that way--though it shouldn't be...it's the 21st century!!--but it's a refreshing change from the norm.

Stunning and inspiring from cover to back.

I love CRWNMAG! I grew up with Jet and Ebony but CRWN feels like it was personally made for me as a modern, spiritual, community-oriented, beautiful, eclectic Black woman. As a therapist, I always make sure CRWNMAG is at the top of the pile in my waiting room because it makes my Black clients feel seen and celebrated without me having to say a word.
