About Essence Magazine

Essence is a monthly lifestyle magazine covering fashion, beauty, entertainment, and culture. First published in 1970, the magazine is written for African-American women. Edward Lewis, Clarence O. Smith, Cecil Hollingsworth, and Jonathan Blount founded Essence Communications Inc. (ECI) in 1968. It began publishing Essence magazine in May 1970. Essence Magazine’s headquarters is located at 241 37th Avenue, 4th Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11232. Lewis and Smith called the publication a lifestyle magazine directed at upscale African American women. They recognized that Black women were an overlooked demographic and saw Essence as an opportunity to capitalize on a virtually untouched market of Black women readers. Its initial circulation was approximately 50,000 copies per month, subsequently growing to roughly 1.6 million. Gordon Parks served as its editorial director during the first three years of its circulation. In 2000, Time Inc. purchased 49 percent of Essence Communications Inc. In 2005, Time Inc. made a deal with Essence Communications Inc. to purchase the remaining 51 percent. The deal placed the ownership of the 34-year-old Essence magazine, one of the United States’ leading magazines for women of color, under widespread ownership, rather than black ownership. In January 2018, the magazine returned to a fully black-owned publication after its acquisition by Richelieu Dennis, the founder of Sundial Brands. Essence Magazine has won several awards. In 1970 it won the National Magazine Award for Fiction for Hortense Spillers Isom. In 2008 it won the AdAge American Magazine Vanguard Award for magazines that are innovating smartly beyond print. Essence Magazine also won the New York Association of Black Journalists awards in the Investigative, General Feature, International, Business/Technology, Science/Health, Arts and Entertainment, Personal Commentary, Public Affairs, and Online categories in 2008. Essence Magazine was awarded the NABJ Magazine Specialty Award. This award was received for their two-part series The Story of AIDS in Black America. It won the NABJ Magazine Award for Business. This award was received for its Essence Home Ownership Campaign. In 2010 Essence Magazine won the NABJ Award for Investigative writing for Angela Burt-Murray, Jeannine Amber, Rosemarie Robotham’s Lost Girl; Single Topic Series for Realizing the Dream. Essence issues in the early 2000s featured mostly black woman models with lighter skin complexions. The magazine then began to include a greater number of models with darker skin complexions. In terms of hair types, long and wavy hairstyles were almost equally represented as short and curly styles. The sizes of the noses and lips of most of the models were considered average. The bodies of the models were not often displayed. When they were, thinner and average body types were more likely to be shown than fuller body types. These observations rose out of a study titled Race and Gender in the Media: A Content Analysis of Advertisements in Two Mainstream Black Magazines. They were then used to comment on what the image practices of Essence may say about how black media represents black people, chiefly black women, and how these representations may reflect and reveal larger truths about how black people themselves.
