This post is part of a weekly series celebrating #ThrowbackThursday with reflections of our favorite childhood memories, past pop culture moments and more! 

New York Fashion Week is official upon us and here at news, we’re taking the initiative to make the fashion industry more inclusive through our campaign #NYFW4All. 

As Iman stated earlier this week, there are still leaps and bounds the industry needs to make in terms of equal representation. That said, we’d be completely remiss to not pay homage to the black models who broke barriers and catwalked their way to diversifying the industry, paving the way for a younger generation of models like Chanel Iman and Joan Smalls to thrive today.

Let’s not forget: Beverly Johnson made history as Vogue’s first black cover model, Mounia was Yves Saint Laurent’s first black muse and Tyra Banks was the first black model to land the cover of Sports Illustrated. 

 Take a look at some of the black models who’ve sashayed and slayed throughout the years:
