Black Panther starlet Danai Gurira looks absolutely radiant for the new cover of EBONY magazine. The actress, playwright, producer and activist is the epitome of #BlackGirlMagic in these beautiful images shot by renowned photographer Dennis Leupold.

“Growing up at a time when you didn’t often see yourself represented in popular media, #EbonyMagazine was always that source of edification celebrating Black voices, history, and achievements. Really enjoyed shooting this cover and sharing my story with them. Thanks so much @ebonymagazine,” said Gurira on social media.

According to EBONY, Gurira rocked to Diana Ross‘ classic 70s hit “The Boss” while doing her photo shoot. Click on the video of the song below while looking at the photos:
