It was beautiful but could have used more content.

It made me feel included and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Beautiful, creative, inspiring example of Black Excellence.

So inspiring and refreshing to finally see representations of black hair and beauty in a way I have never experienced. I ordered the mag for my friend because it was such an incredible find! It has also been a great piece to feature in my living room - it starts conversations an opens people's eyes to the world of Black hair, beauty, culture, and experience.

I love images that CRWNMAG pushes but I find the overall content sort of elitist

I do enjoy it overall, but I'd like to see more black women who are in the margins and thriving. A lot of my friends get sick of the "talented tenth" image that we perpetuate in order to be successful. A lot of my friends are *** workers, hood economists, single mothers and the working poor. They don't see themselves represented anywhere without negative stereotypes resurfacing, and then the #getthisdance woman goes viral, who is an addict, single mother and without stable housing.

CRWNMAG is one of the most important publications to launch in a long time. It’s also one of the most beautifully shot & written!

I am a black woman of Barbadian descent who was raised in England. Growing up in a country where NO ONE in the magazines looked like me was hard. It literally formed my impression that I was not beautiful. More importantly, I was the daughter in the family that everyone said “didn’t get the ‘good’ hair“. My hair was coarse, coiled and thick, and no matter what my mother did, it would not give. She’d spend time heating a hot comb on the stove and combing through my hair. It did not work (or as they said back then, my hair didn’t “take”). So where my sisters could straighten their hair and have all different styles with ringlets and ribbons, like the ‘white magazines’, I had to stick to a bun - the ‘**** sister’ who compensated by being the ‘smart’ one. I grew up never wanting to have my picture taken- I still struggle with that today. I spent my life trying to find a straightener that would work, then spending a fortune on weaves and braids, because my natural look was intimidating to the corporate world too. Fast forward to my first issue of Crwn arriving? I literally cried. I truly believe the little girl in me cried. It was SO beautiful and SO meaningful to see women of all shades with beautifully natural hair. I sat with the first edition for over 2 hours, at first tearful, then smiling. Crwn: you have made sure that little girls of all shades will never again grow up in a world where no one in magazines looks like them. Where they can open a magazine and read about the issues that their community faces, or read about Black Love, or about being a Black business owner. Whenever a new issue releases, I am so excited to receive it!! Not only is it an amazing read, the covers are so gorgeous, that even after reading you can display them on coffee tables and other places around your home. I could not recommend Crwn Magazine more!! Thank you for informing, entertaining, AND healing us!
