A Moving Scene


For this month’s cover story, centered on Ghanaian British writer-actor Michaela Coel (“On a Roll,” page 80), photograph­er Malick Bodian and stylist Ib Kamara rushed headlong into the hustle and bustle of central Accra, Ghana, shooting Coel in Makola Market, at the beach, and zooming down the streets on her Rollerblad­es. “It was amazing to see an African woman celebrated in the way I have always believed they should be,” says Kamara, the Sierra Leone–born, London-based editor in chief of Dazed magazine. “I hope young Black girls will be able to see themselves in this light—inspiring and opening doors for more African talent in the future.”
