These gorgeous, genius women are the epitome of #BlackGirlMagic, and ESSENCE wants the whole world to know it.

The magazine’s February issue highlights Black women by shining a ray of light on the accomplishments of Black Lives Matters activist Johnetta ‘Netta’ Elzie, the on-screen brilliance of Teyonah Parris, and the youthful ambition of Black-ish star Yara Shahidi:

The gorgeous spread kicks off Black History Month with a bang, and a feature story boasting, “Black History Matters.”

Netta expressed her gratitude for the opportunity, and triumphantly wrote, “We Will Win” in the caption of her Instagram photo.

It’s a beautiful day to see Black girls winning!
