I've put some scans of beautiful Naomi Sims in the "Members Add Photos" album. A fold-out cover of Black Elegance (BE) magazine, Sept. 1996, featuring Naomi Sims (along with Rashid Silvera, Barbara Smith, Sheila Johnson, Joyce Walker-Joseph, Denise Barros, Wanakee and Renauld White), and a page article about Naomi Sims from that same issue.
