Ebony Reveals 70th Anniversary “Power To The (100) People” Cover
Today, Ebony Magazine unveiled its 70th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Cover, featuring celebrity-advocate favorites Jesse Williams, Harry Belafonte and Zendaya on the cover. The three stood with the captioned phrase “Stand For Something,” focusing on the issue’s theme of “advocacy, audacity and the arts.” The edition will also feature Ebony’s annual Power 100 list that is appropriately titled “Power (100) To The People.”
Kendrick Lamar, Kwasi Enin, Prince, Adehnah Bayho and Amandla Stenberg were among the few who were highlighted as African-Americans who broke barriers in their respected career field for the year 2015.
In a press release, Ebony’s editor-in-chief Kierna Mayo expressed her thoughts on the 70th-anniversary edition and Power 100 List, saying:
“It is truly an honor to celebrate the tremendous talents and accomplishments of the honorees on this year’s Power 100 list. From the #BlackLivesMatter movement to technology disruptors to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies, all of the selected individuals have made an undeniable impact. They represent outstanding examples of greatness, and provide hope and inspiration for the next generation.”
