Naomi being interviewed about her campaign to see more models of colour in the fashion industry. Despite having to get around an interviewer asking irrelevant and pre-conceived questions, Naomi manages to put some really good insights on the table. When asked about her ‘anger’ and whether it’s good or bad, she calmly replies; “I’m not angry, and I don’t like the thing of ‘the angry black woman’ either…We feel passionate, feeling passionate about something doesn’t mean you have to be angry.”
Keep fighting the good fight Naomi and know that it doesn’t go unnoticed or unsupported.
