“In Conversation” with author/journalist Allison Samuels* and supermodel Beverly Johnson, hosted by media legend Doctor Renel Brooks Moon – “The Influence of Black Style”.

From elegant high glamour to the hottest looks on the street, Black Style has influenced the trends and designers that have shaped American, and global culture. The panelists took a look back at the fashion, accessories and attitude that rocked the runways and had an undeniable effect on the way we look and dress today.

Johnson, a pioneering and widely respected icon of style, beauty and fashion, was at ease with the SRO crowd, who lingered on her every word as she brought truth, humor and a sense of purpose to the world of fashion, still an alluring mystery to many of us.

Johnson will also be participating in Macy’s Black History Month Celebrations in Atlanta (Feb 20), Houston (Feb 8), Los Angeles (Feb 6), New York (Feb 13), Philadelphia (Feb 12), Pittsburg (Feb 26) and Washington D.C. (Feb 27).
