Right after EBONY had a controversial Cosby Show cover, the magazine is back for more. In celebration of the magazine’s 70th anniversary, editor-in-chief Kierna Mayo and company just released the cover for the December issue.
In this issue, the writers are urging readers to #StandForSomething. The cover features actor and civil rights legend Harry Belafonte next to this new generation of socially conscious celebs, Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams and Disney’s Zendaya Coleman.
As people are viewing the cover, the magazine is getting a lot of love. Ava DuVernay called it “epic” and Michaela Angela David said it helps understand the heritage of the social justice movement. Power to the people! Check out the cover below:
