A big thank you to everyone who made this issue possible: story teller Usman, poet Utsab, interviewee Real Sane as well as our fashion muse Phillip Lim. Thanks is also due to our sponsor Help For Humanity. Ethos is a small project to elevate beauty. We see beauty as the means by which we tap in to our greater selves, connecting with the greater good and with God. This issue celebrates creativity, honesty and excellence. We thank you in advance for reading. Be sure to follow us on Instagram where we are currently celebrating beauty from the African Diaspora #Ethosbbm and Tumblr for daily inspiration, as well as Facebook and Twitter for updates.
