Back in 2006 when we launched Black Magazine, we contacted our good friend David K Shields who was, at that time residing in New York. He delivered three editorials and the cover for the inaugural issue, including this beautiful oh-so-New York shoot which we simply entitled MoTown. It looks just as good today as it did back then.
