This issue is about revolution, remembrance, and rebirth. In Dubai, Chef Alexander Smalls is launching a first-of-its-kind food experience celebrating the culinary revolution taking place in Africa. In New York, as fashion week returned, House of Aama launched a collection remembering the elegance of 20th century Black resort towns. In Philadelphia, Chanae Richards is carving out space for rest, relaxation and meditation. And in Los Angeles, our cover star, Jennah Bell, is part of a renaissance of music that is indie, soulful and written from the heart.

In this issue we take you to The Deacon hotel designed by Shannon Maldonado. And in our Wellness section, we let you in our own road to rebirth, through the journey with long-haul COVID that has defined our life this past year.

In our Reference section we explore new thoughts on the African Diaspora. Looking beyond the history behind the word to explore the idea itself, opening new worlds of possibility as we begin working to understand what the African Diaspora actually is. And we take you inside the importance of the emerging Black art scene heralded by the Obama portraits which, now well into their national tour, made a memorable stop at the Brooklyn Museum.
