Edward Lewis

Propelled by the extraordinary success following his co-founding of Essence magazine, Edward Lewis has become one of the most successful and respected magazine publishers in the country. In 1995, he also co-founded Latina magazine. His book, The Man From Essence: Creation of a Magazine for Black Women, is a must-read for aspiring media moguls. As a pioneer in the field of publishing, he has shared the stories of thousands and given a voice to millions of people of color.
