Editor’s Note: Given our Italian/French theme this issue and in an effort to spotlight what black women are doing all over the world, this week we’re highlighting Black women in Italy that are carving out a space for themselves in popular media.
Who She Is: Singer and songwriter Saba Anglana is of Ethiopian and Italian descent, but was born in Somalia and raised in Italy. Her musical style and head-turning melodies highlight her traditional and cross-cultural upbringing and her desire to stay connected to her Somali roots.
Signature Look: Saba’s hair is often styled in her natural curled tresses. This simple style directs attention to her frequently striking clothing choices—bold colors and patterns and chunky jewelry!
