Tennis player Serena Williams has made history for being the first woman to flaunt cornrows on the cover of Teen Vogue magazine.

Williams paired her cornrows with a coral jacket and gold earrings, looking powerful and beautiful on the December cover issue.

“We put cornrows on the cover of Teen Vogue for the first time in the publication’s history,” the magazine tweeted.

Williams’ cover photo comes with an interview, conducted by the publication’s new editor-in-chief Lindsay People Wagner.

Gun control activist Naomi Wadler is also featured in conversation with them. She had gained famed after speaking at the March for Our Lives protest in 2017 and credits her fellow activists for keeping her motivated in her work.

Wagner revealed why she had decided to feature a black woman with cornrows as one of her first moves as the new editor-in-chief. In the introduction, Wagner explains that her mother had advised her, when she younger, to be what she needed to be to sustain herself in the industry.

So she decided to feature Williams in conversation with her and Wadler, as three young black girls figuring out their magic. The cover was shot by black female photographer Ronan Mckenzie.

Williams stressed how important it is to support women, especially women of color. By supporting one another, the success of one woman could inspire another, and together, they might accomplish great things.
