CHICAGO - Dec. 16, 2016 - PRLog -- To mark the political ascent and enduring legacy of President Barack H. Obama, EBONY has published a special commemorative edition, "Hail to the Chief: Saluting Eight Years of Excellence." This stylish, thought-provoking issue is a unique collection of exclusive photographs, archival EBONY articles and hard-hitting analyses from leading African-American writers including award-winning poet, author and civil rights activist, Nikki Giovanni; MSNBC award-winning journalist Joy-Ann Reid; culturally astute critic Eric Deggans; pop culture pundit Touré;and New York Times best-selling author Baratunde Thurston.

"Our readers know the utter importance of simple images of Obama and the first family in a White House that had been very literal with respect to its previous inhabitants," says Kyra Kyles, editor-in-chief of EBONY.  "But our team went well beyond the aesthetics and recruited the most sought-after Black thought leaders to candidly discuss the social context around his administration, his achievements over two terms and the impact he will have as our first but hopefully not our last."

Among the highlights:

Editor's Letter: EIC Kyles bids adieu to President Barack Obama in this touching reflection on his absolute grace under partisan fire.
Poetic Justice: Nikki Giovanni pens an exclusive poem for EBONY capturing the essence of the first African-American president.
The Legacy: From his electrifying ascent to the legislative imprint he leaves behind, EBONY examines President Obama's undeniable impact on health care, race relations, gay and women's rights.
The Love: We examine the love shared by President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama and its impact on uplifting Black families.
The Look: By combining haute couture with dashes of attainable attire, the first family embraced the power of fashion.
The Laughs: He could have occasionally been dubbed "comic-in-chief."  A look at Obama's best clapbacks.
Famous Farewells: Supporters ranging from members of Congress to well-known entertainers offer their thanks and words of encouragement to the 44th U.S. president.

EBONY's commemorative special commemorative edition will be available December 20 for purchase on newsstands only.
