Belle-Noir Magazine: March/April 2012
Belle-Noir Magazine was originally concepted in August 2003 after a discussion in the Yahoo! Group EbonyBBWsandEbonyGentlemen
in which several of the female members voiced their concerns over the
lack of representation of BBWs of Color in print media.
It was agreed
that whether it was a magazine geared towards BBWs or a magazine for
Women of Color, women size 14 and over were rarely ever featured at all.
Ms. Aja B. Stubbs, seeing the past and recent demise of several
magazines for both BBWs and women of color, decided to take her personal
goal of starting a magazine to the 21st Century by creating an online
publication that would be dedicated to women just like her and the
lovely ladies in "Ebz".
With the help of several friends in "Ebz" and a
lot of determination, Belle-Noir E-zine launched on November 1, 2003 on a
Geocities site. After several successful years as a bi-monthly online e-zine, and a
daily blog, Belle-Noir Magazine now transistions to a digital magazine
format. Published bi-monthly, the magazine contimues to take its place
as one of the top sites for plus size women of Color.
