Washington, DC (September 23, 2012) -- The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) would like to congratulate Keija Minor on being named editor-in-chief of Brides.
Minor has had a successful career as a writer and editor at several publications most notably Uptown Magazine which she led from 2008 until 2011.
"I congratulate Keija on her historic appointment as the first African-American editor of a Conde Nast publication," said NABJ President Gregory Lee, Jr. "It is heartening to know that a person of color will be high on the masthead at Brides, and that she will serve as a source of inspiration for women and men who aspire to enter the magazine industry.”
After a successful career as an attorney the University of Massachusetts and Howard University School of Law graduate worked her way up from intern to editor of her first outlet Travel Savvy. Eventually she served as editor-in-chief of Gotham Magazine.
