Thanks to @Dawnavette for calling our attention to this disgraceful ad by Vogue Magazine (Italia) with her excellent blog post, “Slave Earrings Will Never Be Vogue”: http://dawnavette.wordpress.com/2011/08/21/slave-earrings-will-never-be-vogue/

Sadly, thanks to @thatwritingchic , Vogue has been thinking “Slave Earrings” ads were okay since at least 1946!! http://lockerz.com/s/131759704

Ad agencies are clearly in dire need of consultation by Black Women and Men, as they routinely miss the mark in communicating with consumers. From the Summer’s Eve to McDonald’s to Vogue, the lack of tact, cultural relevance and basic intelligence is simply appalling.

In this latest example by Vogue Magazine, we want the ad removed IMMEDIATELY and we want a specific apology to Black women because Black womens’ supposed slave narratives were used in the promulgation of the ad.

Avail yourself of Harriet Jacobs’ “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl” and have a seat!
