In honor of ESSENCE's 40th Anniversary, we celebrate the stars who were born in 1970, making it a very special year. From Naomi Campbell to Queen Latifah, Taraji P. Henson to Tyson Beckford, some of our favorite celebrities have aged just as fabulously as we have. That same year, Diana Ross left the Supremes, the rock star Jimi Hendrix died, and a magazine devoted to Black women was launched. Take a look at the stellar talent celebrating the big 4-0 with ESSENCE. Here's what you had to say: Kiana commented via Facebook: "Black don't crack." Tamera wrote via Facebook: " 40 must be the next 20. They are all so gorgeous."
