Naoim Sims dies at 61

Sadly the beautiful Naomi Sims has passed away from cancer at the age of 61. Naomi was the first black super model.In 1968 She was the first black model to appear on mainstream magazine, Ladies Home Journal . Sims also appeared on the covers of Essence,Life, and Cosmo. Ms.Sims was a trail blazer and paved the way for the young black super models of today.My deepest sympathies go out to her family.
