Fearless Magazine: Class of 2011
It’s been more than a year since our post on Fearless Class of 2010. We were even fortunate enough to have some of the stars comment on the post. Unfortunately, those comments were lost when we switched over to our new site. Since then just about everyone featured in that class has had one hell of a good year.
This year we get a new set of black television stars to celebrate. Fearless magazine’s 2nd Annual FEARLESS class cover features Keisha Knight Pulliam, Hosea Chanchez, Annie Ilonzeh, Lance Gross, Tatyana Ali, Coby Bell, Joyful Drake, and Christian Keyes.
Chanchez is one of the stars of BET’s super sitcom ‘The Game.’ Ilonzeh was the first black angel in the now-cancelled ‘Charlie’s Angels’ series. Gross was the leading man in last year’s ‘Our Family Wedding’ with Ugly Betty‘s America Ferrera. The actor has a slew of upcoming high-profile projects, including new films ‘The Last Fall,’ and Tyler Perry‘s ‘The Marriage Counselor.’ Drake is one of the actresses we mistakenly left off of the Black Stars of Fall 2011 list. She stars in the hit BET comedy ‘Lets Stay Together’ with an awesome cast. Ali is killing it with her own sitcom ‘Love That Girl’ on TVOne. Bell has been juggling two high-profile gigs with BET’s ‘The Game,’ and USA’s ‘Burn Notice’ over the past year. Keyes has appeared in several stage plays and independent black films.
“This issue encompasses so much of the word “Fearless,” says Publisher Arian Simone. “It seamlessly sets the tone of thanksgiving, humility and expectation as we celebrate our one-year anniversary. Just a little over 365 days ago, we set out to inspire, uplift and encourage readers to do their personal best in all they do. Twelve months later, we are still accomplishing that goal. I’m grateful for each and every contributor, participant, subscriber and supporter in our journey thus far, and we’re excited and devoted to sowing positive messages into the lives of each and every person this magazine will encounter.”
