Conde Nast Hires First Black EIC in its 103-Year History

Celebrate or side-eye?

It took 103 years, but publishing powerhouse Condé Nast Publications has finally hired its first black editor-in-chief.

Keija Minor will head up Brides magazine.

Amazing that it took 103 years, but mainstream mastheads tend to get less colorful the closer you get to the top.

Are you surprised it took over a century to get a black editor-in-chief at Condé Nast?

    I am not at all surprised that it took 103 years to get a Black Editor in Chief. However, I would like to know if they are hiring freelance writers for any of their properties. I am ready and available to work.
