Elizabeth White, 64

“I grew up looking African before Africa was cool. There were no Lupita Nyong’o’s gracing the covers of fashion magazines. The only way for me to survive, confidence intact, was to go my own way. You don’t like my round nose — I’m gonna put a diamond right in the middle of it. You think my hair is too coily, well, how big can I get it? I like sheath dresses in interesting textures and fabrics with bold African jewelry as a nod to my heritage. The clothes I’ve had for years and fitting them at this age and stage and is hand-to-hand combat.”
