“Aamito Lagum, Achok Majak, Ajak Deng, Ajuma Nasenyana, Alek Wek, Angok Mayen, Grace Bol, Mari Agory and Nykhor Paul. You never see them at Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Versace, etc.. Like Nykhor Paul said “…people need to expand their idea of what black models can do. Black beauty can be Chanel, black beauty can be Dior.” This needs to change. Black models with darker skin should/also deserve to be casted by bigger names/brands.”   - @amen69fashion

“None of them have any Vogue covers and are rarely used on any of the big campaigns. They don’t even book them for covers for smaller fashion mags or use them in editorials they way they use their lighter counterparts” - @fuckrashida

  • “If you or your family are from South Sudan, you worry. The country is embroiled in a bloody civil war, the world just barely taking note. Grace Bol, Ajak Deng, and Alek Wek are immigrants. Angok Mayen has refugee status, and Mayen’s daughter, Alyieth, is a U.S. citizen - born here, like Achok Majak. They are all models (including Alyieth, in this instance). “ I would like to see everyone get along,” says Bol. “I love all our tribes.” While here sisters grew up in South Sudan, Majak grew up in L.A., where she saw the sort of anxiety that war refugees feel on the arrival in the U.S. “I want a bright future for those who are younger - who are the future,” she says. Wek stresses the need to listen - especially to women - “to really show the beauty of the diversity of us within the continent.” she says. “I think it teaches the younger generation that they can be kind to one another. South Sudan has so much hope-I mean, look at the U.S.: Almost 250 years, and we still have challenges.”
