Black Americans of the 1960s were fighting to define their future and themselves on their own terms; EBONY was there to capture the journey.
In the ’90s, regardless of the topic, EBONY remained true to its mission to encourage and empower Black Americans to move forward and to continue to move up.
In this era of relearning and redetermining what constituted the identity of the African- American, EBONY helped its readers make sense of our experiences and to challenge our presumptions about the present while engendering hope for the future.
During the Obama era, as it had in previous decades, EBONY addressed of all these matters to and from the African- American point of view.
In the 50s, the face of the nation was rapidly changing. EBONY magazine not only kept pace, but it also often led the charge.
From its inception EBONY was determined to illuminate the truth of the Negro experience. It boldly confronted the institutionalized racism of its day, proudly provided evidence that Negroes could thrive in spite of it, yet continued to offer hope that America could and would change for the better.
In the era of Black Lives Matter, as it had in the past, when events relevant to African-Americans and their allies unfolded, EBONY brought the discussion to its readers.
