EBONY Magazine's It Factor Issue

You knew that EBONY was going to have to drop an issue celebrating the sistahs after their 25 Coolest Brothers issue generated much buzz, conversation in the blogosphere and arguments in beauty and barbershops across America last year.

The July/August 2009 issue of EBONY features 4 separate covers featuring Alicia Keys (the one I currently own) First Lady Michelle Obama, Tina Turner, and Halle Berry.

Of course I'm going to post the list of 25 women who as EBONY put it, made us sit up and take notice.

Alicia Keys
Michelle Obama
Tina Turner
Halle Berry
Naomi Campbell

Jennifer Hudson
Aretha Franklin
Serena Williams
Condoleezza Rice
Oprah Winfrey

Tyra Banks
Angela Davis
Erykah Badu
Jill Scott
Lil' Kim

Whoopi Goldberg
Diahann Carroll
Pam Grier
Patti LaBelle

Diana Ross
Grace Jones
Mary J. Blige

Okay, I already have problems with this list. No Lena Horne? No Dorothy Dandridge? No Phyllis Hyman? And you put Lil' Kim and Condoleezza Rice on it? I don't think so.

But let the discussion and cussin' begin.
