Former Uptown Editor-in-Chief Keija Minor has been named the editor-in-chief of Brides, making her the first person of color to ever hold the title at a Condé Nast Publications. Which is huge news?
Minor had been Brides’ executive editor since late last year, and acting editor-in-chief since Anne Fulenwider left ‘Brides’ earlier this month to become the new editor-in-chief of Marie Claire magazine. “Keija’s contribution to Brides over the past several months has been invaluable and will enable her to step seamlessly into the role of editor-in-chief,” said Condé Nast editorial director,Tom Wallace. “She is a gifted editor. Brides will benefit from both her energy and her passion.”
Now that they have an African-American editor-in-chief they can diversify their publication a little more with darker skin women.
