Naomi Campbell Never Enjoyed Being the ‘Token’ Black in Fashion Industry [WATCH]

Naomi Campbell dished with Andy Cohen remotely on “Watch What Happens Live” Tuesday, and addressed Anna Wintour’s recent statement to Vogue staff about not doing enough to elevate diverse voices.

Wintour noted in the memo: “I want to say plainly that I know Vogue has not found enough ways to elevate and give space to Black editors, writers, photographers, designers and other creators. We have made mistakes too, publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant. I take full responsibility for those mistakes.”

When asked her opinion about Anna’s statement, Campbell said, “I think things are about to change, don’t you?” she asked Cohen. “Things are about to change.”

“Everyone used to think that you liked being the token Black person in the room,” she added. “It’s absolutely the opposite. I never did.”

=====================


Wintour acknowledged, “It can’t be easy to be a Black employee at Vogue, and there are too few of you. I know that it is not enough to say we will do better, but we will — and please know that I value ...your voices and responses as we move [[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[Wintour acknowledged, “It can’t be easy to be a Black employee at Vogue, and there are too few of you.

She pledged, “On a corporate level, work is being done to support organizations in a real way. These actions will be announced as soon as possible. I am arranging ways we can discuss these issues together candidly, but in the meantime, I welcome your thoughts or reactions.”

Campbell explained to Cohen that change needs to begin top-down.

“It needs to change from the boardroom to the seat. It needs to go right from the top through,” she said. “I’ve been saying this for years, and so I’m truly grateful and happy finally this is happening.”

“The way that it’s had to come out, for people to lose their lives, it’s very sad and my condolences to each and every one of those victims…parents of those people that have gone,” Campbell said of the rising racial tension over the police killing of Black people. “This had to happen. This change had to happen.”
