Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan Among Black Actors Featured in Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue

Hey, it's progress.

Remember back when Vanity Fair’s Young Hollywood cover featured an all white cast of actors and we had to dream up a version that reflected the real America? Looks like they didn’t make that same mistake this year since they tapped two of the industry’s biggest young black stars for the cover shoot. Jezebel points out that this year’s cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz, tries to make up for past wrongs. In addition to Chiwetel Edjiofor and Idris Elba, the main cover also includes Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Naomie Harris and Chadwick Boseman (42).
