We’re remembering Donyale Luna, the first African-American to appear on the cover of British Vogue in 1966. The 6’2” model also appeared on the cover of Harper’s Baazar in 1965, posed nude for Playboy in 1975 and several films produced by Andy Warhol. She overcame many prejudices during her time. Luna died at age 32 in 1979, leaving behind her young daughter, Dream.
