More About Essence: A magazine aimed at the black woman, Essence focuses not only on fashion, beauty and style, but it also delves into issues on career and African-American culture. While its target audience tends to be slightly older than those who are fresh out of college, it likes catering to all who are career-minded, sophisticated, and independent thinkers and achievers. Packed inside are plenty of articles that cover inspiring black women, the hottest new looks of the season, trends, money, health, and, of course, a section strictly about men and relationships, which includes topics on sex and intimacy. While readers will find no shortage of African-American celebrities covered, expect most interviews to be uplifting stories about achievement. If they look carefully, readers could even find out more about Jada Pinkett Smith making her feature screenwriting and directorial debut.
