LAST YEAR saw the launch of CRWN, the aptly-titled empowering natural hair magazine “serving a woman who is more educated, well-travelled and sophisticated than ever before”.
The brainchild of Lindsey Day and Nkrumah Farrar, the bi-monthly publication is a lifestyle magazine that aims to touch on all the complexities and experiences of black women.
“CRWN is truly a lifestyle magazine,” Lindsey Day, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the magazine, told The Huffington Post. “We are serving a woman who is more educated, well-travelled and sophisticated than ever before — largely because generations before us have fought to ensure our seats at the table.”
Together, Lindsey and co-founder Nkrumah aim to create a space that takes back the narrative around natural hair, sets new standards of beauty and promotes their mission around sisterhood, authenticity and self-love.
“Above all, we want women to open CRWN Magazine and see themselves. Most of our subjects aren’t models; they’re real women and they’re absolutely beautiful!” Lindsey said. “We want to convey a different aesthetic and sensibility, one that feels more real and attainable to our reader; and that feels like a premium experience as they flip through it.”
“We created CRWN for the love of our people, to uplift and celebrate our sisters and their beautiful natural hair,” Lindsey said. “We’re doing this for our people, for the culture.”
