The supermodel explained: "The guy at the entrance pretended that the place was [full]. But he let other people pass," Campbell said, per The Root. She did not specify which hotel refused to let her in.
Naomi also added: "It’s because of revolting moments like this one that I’ll continue to express myself and make myself heard,".

Miss Campbell who is known as a vocal advocate for diversity in the fashion industry, acknowledges in the interview that she's paved the way for models of color who rose to fame after her. However, she notes that the struggle for racial equality in fashion is not over yet. "The challenge is permanent," she said, according to The Root.
The supermodel also recently told Reuters that representation in the industry has changed "in so many ways" since she first started out, but people shouldn't think of it as a passing fad. "It’s finally ... sunken in but now we hope people don’t think it’s in for a trend, like clothes are in for a season and out for a season, that’s not going to happen," she said.
Naomi Campbell, Iman
Over the past few years, Campbell has teamed up with fellow game-changing models Iman and Bethann Hardison to address and fight racism in fashion. Iman told Harper's BAZAAR of the impact of their collaboration, "I think we’re seeing the change on the runways and in campaigns."
Naomi Campbell who is now also an activist, considers the incident yet another reason why she continues to fight for equality, also referencing her mentorship by the late Nelson Mandela in the interview, saying “Mandela opened my eyes, my heart, and showed me the way. With him, I learned a lot.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TATA !! Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity; it is an act of justice. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” “PRESIDENT NELSON MANDELA” HAPPY 101 BIRTHDAY TATA ,. AS WE STILL STRIVE FOR EQUALITY ,JUSTICE , PEACE . PEOPLE USE THE WORD GLOBAL SO FREQUENTLY THESE DAYS , BUT THESE COMPANIES ARE NOT GLOBAL IF YOU MISS OUT ON AN ENTIRE CONTINENT !!

Now a veteran in her field, Naomi Campbell recently launched a successful  YouTube channel, reportedly working on a show for Amazon with fellow model  Tim Gunn of Project Runway fame. But the supermodel says Africa is her biggest ambition.

She tells Paris Match: “My dream is to go to all African countries. I still have a lot to do. I want to change the perception of this continent, and encourage the people of our world to invest in infrastructure. For this mission, I will never be tired.”

The revelation comes after supermodel Tyra Banks claimed relations between her and Naomi were frosty because the fashion industry wouldn’t have accepted two successful black models at the same time in the ‘90s. While she still has one foot on the runway, Naomi has delved deeper into philanthropy work in recent years and was seen supporting female basketball players in Senegal earlier this month. The fashion muse attended the SEED Project Hoop Forum to encourage female basketball players to keep honing their skills.
