Jessica White (Finally) Has Wings
One of my favorite PAPER moments? Sitting down with fellow black beauty (she's taller and thinner with a longer weave, but one can dream....) for a piece that ran in our 25th Anniversary issue. Between juicy tidbits about her relationships with rappers and life as a cover girl, she dropped a jewel on her latest passion: a charity. At the time it was just an idea -- but earlier this week she made it a reality! White formally launched her "Angel Wings Foundation" with a charity dinner at Georgica Restaurant & Lounge over the weekend. White, along with her benefit committee members Charolotte Ronson and Russell Simmons, hosted a private dinner and auction with proceeds going towards the charity, which is focused on helping abused men and women.
