In 1997, Tyra Banks became the first African American woman to be on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue solo.
Fast forward 22 years and Tyra's at it again! At 45, she looks as amazing as she ever has and she is sending an incredible strong-woman message to women everywhere! She posted her gorgeous cover on Instagram with this..."This is for everybody that has been told that they are not good enough because of their body, their age, their everything.#BanXis here to tell you that you ARE friggin’ fierce no matter what anybody says! Drop mic now! @si_swimsuit2019"
