Bi-monthly, and sold in worldwide, former cover stars include Naomi Campbell, Alek Wek, Liya Kebede, Alicia Keys, and interviews with Jay Z, Charlize Theron, Grace Jones, Denzel Washington, Erykah Badu.
Exclusives include behind-the-scenes access at Barack Obama’s inauguration, a World Cup 2010 report profiling players from all six African teams, and coverage of Alicia Keys’ Keep A Child Alive Black Ball, for which ARISE was the media sponsor.
