Essence Magazine had the brilliant idea to peek behind the curtain of the White House — before President Obama leaves office — and reveal the black women who are running things.

Twenty-nine women were photographed last month in the White House’s Indian Treaty Room of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Also, many friends of The Fab were featured including Valerie Jarrett, Stephanie Young, Addie Whisenant, Desiree Barnes and former Delta Sigma Theta Second Vice President, Ashley Allison (shown in order below).

Congrats ladies!
