Meet Essence’s New Editor-in-Chief
Many of us waited with baited breath for Essence to announce their new editor-in-chief. Well the wait is over. The magazine announced that Constance C.R. White will take on the role as editor-in-chief.
Constance C.R. White, who has worked for Elle and Talk, will take the role from Sheryl Tucker who served as the interim editor-in-chief since Angela Burt-Murray resigned four months ago.
The magazine, and Burt-Murray specifically caught some serious flack from readers and media figures when she hired Ellianna Placas, a white woman, as the magazine’s fashion director.
