The Beauty of Retrospect: Beverly Johnson

There's never any shortage of pictures of Beverly Johnson, the black supermodel of the 1970s.

There isn't a shortage of hairstyles she's sported, either. :-) 

Although she always looks striking in black and white, color film very much becomes her.

The first color photo in this post is,  I believe, from the March 1980 U.S. edition of Harper's Bazaar.  I don't remember where I found the second one.

It makes sense to post these pictures of Beverly Johnson, a trailblazer for black women, today, on the day of the commemorative civil rights march in Washington.
