Elaine Welteroth, former editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue weighs in on the Vogue cover controversy with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. "I understand that there was a disconnect between the intention and the impact. The intention was to let this new era with a new administration that brings new energy and youthful energy and accessible energy. That was the intention behind the imagery. And they tapped a young black photographer to carry that out. He brought a youthful energy to this shoot. That's not wrong." Here's why the intention didn't match the impact... Vogue has a history of not representing Black women in the best light, literally and figuratively. So there isn't an innate trust within this community."
