RIP Naomi Simms

One of the first successful black models in the 60's, Naomi Simms died of cancer over the weekend at 61.
I was first introduced to her by my mother who told me that she was her own agent, later in Suede Magazine, I read a piece where she was a Renaissance Woman of the day- booking her castings, doing her own makeup and the like.
Pre-Campbell, Tyra, Iman and Pat was the Naomi.
