HAIL TO THE CHIEF: EBONY to Release President Obama Commemorative Issue
Special collector's edition salutes eight years of excellence
By: EBONY Media
"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,"
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."
• 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.
