1. In November 1945, Ebony magazine debuted as the African-American counterpart to Life Magazine, offering articles and ads specifically catered to a black readership. In November 1947, Lena Horne, pictured here, graced the cover. As a 68-year-old media outlet with 11 million readers, Ebony has played a major role in guiding the dialogue on contemporary black issues. Media owned and operated by people of color gives a voice to stories that may otherwise be ignored, so we applaud them!
