Digital curator and media maven Karen Civil just unveiled on Instagram that she’ll be gracing the cover the April 2016 issue of Rolling Out magazine.
Since the release of her Be You & Live Civil book, the mogul has been everywhere; from embarking on her Live Civil tour – empowering others to follow their dreams – to being right beside Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, as Civil served as the face and voice for the launch ‘African Americans for Hillary Clinton‘ event.
