On the cover of this 1974 issue of Jet Magazine are Jayne Kennedy, Eartha Kitt, and Freda Payne. Two of these three women are also featured on the cover image for 50 SHADES OF BLACK. They actually are on the same row. Apparently, I was somewhat in the ball park with my design. Their "conversation" is also particularly salient for our project.
Also, it appears that I have someone to add to the chapter dedicated to those who did not but arguably should have made the cover. Freda Payne is certainly amazing.
