After taking on the lack of model diversity, Franca Sozzani (the editor extraordinaire behind the Black Issue of Italian Vogue) now wants us to sit up and pay attention to a different cause- the immense need for aid in Africa.

As part of her campaign for fashion to stand up and act, Sozzani has made the latest issue of L’Uomo Vogue the ‘AFRICA ISSUE.’ This means that every feature or person included in the issue has some sort of relation to the need of Africa. It features Nelson Mandela, Naomi Campbell, Forest Whitaker and Bernard Henri-Levy (the philosopher and co-editor of the special issue.)

New York Magazine tells us that Sozzani “not want to make an aesthetic statement about Africa…unlike a recent issue of India’s Vogue magazine…this one won’t show peasants posing with $5,000 handbags.”

See after the jump for pictures of contributors including Nelson Mandela and Michelle Obama and e-mail isabelle@shinymedia.com to tell us what you think of the issue.
