Things I'm Loving Right Now: Ebony Magazine's Cover Fun

You know how much I love old Black Hollywood. Imagine how excited I was to see the new covers Ebony did to commemorate their 65 year anniversary! These are my favs.

Taraji Henson as Diahann Carroll

Nia Long as MY INSPIRATION Dorothy Dandridge

Jurnee Smollett as Lena Horne

John Legend as Duke Ellington

Regina King as Eartha Kitt

Usher as Sammy Davis Jr

I love magazines because they freeze time. On Ebony's website you can read digital copies of all their past issues. Cover interviews include anything from a post-Tyson Robin Givens to a pre-presidential Nelson Mandela. We've come a long way as people, and Ebony's beautiful documentation makes me proud.
