      Maxwell Reid was born and raised on Manhattan's west
      side and was encouraged by several of her teachers to
      enroll in the renowned Bronx High School of Science,
      where she graduated as Senior Class

      While [studying] at Northwestern University,
      an English teacher from her high school submitted

      first full-page photograph in `Seventee'n magazine.

      Quickly signed by the Eileen Ford Agency, she appeared
      in many magazines, and was also the first "black"
      woman to grace the cover of `Glamour `magazine.

                  **************Response:************

                  Actually …. it may not be as difficult as may seem at
                  first glance … when one takes into account the fact that
                  the term "African-American" (AA) is simply one that
                  was placed on an `Ethnic' group that was created
                  based on a set of "historical experiences"
                  --- and is not at all a reference to one's
                  "Race" or even one's "Racial"-admixture.

                  It is simply the most recent in a series of
                  misnomers that have been applied to a very
                  specific and unique 'Ethnic' grouping of people.

                  Like any other Ethnic group, the people of the AA
                  Ethnicity can actually be of any "Racial" categorization
                  or "Racial" combinations … as … the definition of an AA is:


                           "a person who is a descendent of the 
                             survivors of the negro Chattel-Slavery 
                            System which existed on the continental 
                            United States -- during the Antebellum 
                            Era and the Reconstruction and Jim Crow 
                            / Segregationist Eras which then followed."

                  For a person to be a "full-AA" essentially
                  means that "
                  both of their parents are
                  `descendents of the survivors'
                  of the
                  System and Eras" that are noted above.

                  When people say that they are 100% AA –
                  they are not claiming to be mono-racially
                  `Black' – nor are they stating that they do
                  not have other Ethnicities in their lineage.

                  Much like the term `Latino' is a reference
                  to a `Cultural' group whose formation
                  occurred within a given set of `Locations'
                  -- the term AA is a reference to an `Ethnic'
                  group whose formation occurred within
                  a given set of `Historical Circumstances'.

                  The term AA, much like the term `Latino', was
                  not originally intended to imply that a person
                  was of any particular "race" – but rather, it
                  was to introduce the `history and events which
                  led to the formation of the people grouping'.

                  Unique, and largely MGM-Mixed Race,
                  'Ethnic' groups -- like the AAs -- and 'Cultural'
                  groups -- like the Latinos -- generally have a
                  wide range of Races, Nationalities, etc. found 
                  within their ancestral lineages -- which is why
                  it's so important to remember that the AA
                  'Ethnic' group was founded on  "Historical
                  Experience" and the Latino 'Cultural' group
                  generally formed around various "Locations".

                  More information on this group
                  can be found at the following link:

                  who was preparing an article on college women.
